BIOGRAPHY

AMETHYSTS are a new band formed in early 2015 based in the fringes of the Suffolk countryside. The bands recordings pull together layers of vocal harmonies which float on top of a sea of synths, driving drums and creative guitar lines.

Since their formation, the band have gained radio play from the likes of BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 6 music, Amazing Radio, BBC Suffolk and BBC Essex amongst others. The band have very recently recorded live sessions with both BBC Suffolk and BBC Essex Introducing.
Clarice and Simon have previously cut their teeth playing all around London and at festivals including Latitude and Brownstock.

Their first two releases ‘Alone’ and ‘Wreckers’ brings together the bands love of modern indie and electronic music together with older classic rock music to create a new and fresh sound.

The band have also been working on a remix for LAB Records band ‘Skies’ of their track ‘Drones’ – released Jan 29th
