Both born in early March (Pisces), our birthstone is Amethyst. We love Gin, Faux Fur and have a fetish for old synthesisers. You'll find us in our studio playing drums on a Roland 505 whilst jamming along with an Omnichord, a Pocket Piano and some guitar loops.
Electronic duo Amethysts are renowned for expertly crafting their brand of Indie Electro. Working with esteemed producer Shuta Shinoda (Daughter, Ghostpoet), the East Anglians use their soothing synths and biting guitars to create an intense, atmospheric experience.
Having racked up over a million plays on streaming platforms alongside BBC Radio 1 and BBC 6 Music airplay as well as sessions with BBC Introducing, the rising pair have already worked with The Orchard (Sony) and Manimal Vinyl Records (Bat For Lashes, Yoko Ono, Moby, Warpaint). The pair have played sets at Latitude Festival, Secret Garden Party, BBC Introducing Live and played support slots for Anna Meredith and Nothing But Thieves among others.
Amethysts are currently preparing their debut album.
