England continues to be a steady purveyor of solid electronic dreampop, as evidenced yet again with new Suffolk act Amethysts. The duo, who’ve received support from tastemakers such as BBC Radio 1‘s Huw Stephens, caught our attention with their latest and second single, “Stones.”
Curtains of synth and hazy guitar atop sub-bass drums set the foundation for the group’s ethereal sound. The capstone of their music though is vocalist Clarice Parrot — when she goes into her upper register around 1:15, “Stones” reaches a seraphic state and the group’s potential seems to know no bounds.
Much like the stone their namesake represents, Amethyst’s music exudes inner strength and spiritual growth, so we’re looking forward to seeing what 2017 has in store for them. Enjoy this gem below.
