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 and some guitar loops.

Electronic duo Amethysts are renowned for expertly crafting their brand of ambient pop to perfection with a series of awe-inspiring hooks. Working with esteemed producer Shuta Shinoda (Daughter, Ghostpoet) and taking full advantage of the acclaim edging their way, the East Anglians rely on their masterful pop sensibilities and soothing synths 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 and 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) and played sets at Latitude Festival, Secret Garden Party, BBC Introducing Live as well as selling out a number of headline shows in and around London.
Amethysts are currently preparing their debut album.
