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.
Alt-Pop duo Amethysts are renowned for expertly crafting their unique sound. 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 duo have already worked with The Orchard (Sony), Ramp Recordings (James Blake, Jamie XX) and Manimal Vinyl (Bat For Lashes, Yoko Ono, Moby, Warpaint). The pair have played sets at Latitude Festival, Secret Garden Party, BBC Introducing Live and supported the likes of Anna Meredith, Bessie Turner and Nothing But Thieves.
