Following their recentQ Awardnomination forBest Breakthrough Act,The Amazons’upwards momentum continues with the news that their brand new track‘Little Something’has been chosen asAnnie Mac’s Hottest Record in the World. Now available to download and stream,‘Little Something’impacts on January 20th.

Produced by Catherine Marks(Wolf Alice, Foals, TheVaccines), ‘Little Something’elevates the clash of melody and aggression that simmered in The Amazons’previous single ‘In My Mind’. It starts with an ominous air of moody atmospherics before erupting into a fiery ball of energy following a dynamic breakdown that inspires chaos when the band performs it live. 

“‘Little Something’ represents the darkest and heaviest place we’ve pushed our music to,”says frontmanMattThomson.“It’s a predatory lyric based around the hunt for an obsession that’s out of reach, and then in the darkness and failure of reaching it, finding yourself becoming something you’re not.” 

‘Little Something’will also feature on the band’s debut album which has been recorded withCatherine MarksinFloodandAlan Moulder’sfamousAssault and Batterystudio in London. 

Still in their early twenties,Thomsonand guitaristChrisAldertonhave been friends since childhood, and the band is completed byElliott Briggs(bass) andJoe Emmett(drums). They hit upon their current sound after being inspired by aFoalsgig atAlexandraPalacein 2014 which shifted their perception of what a contemporary rock band could be. They focused their energies on their early influences –Rage Against The Machine,NirvanaandLedZeppelin– and their music evolved to become heavy, loud and primal. 

The Amazons first attracted a whirlwind of attention after uploaded their demo of ‘Something In The Water’ to SoundCloud. By 2015, their reputation had grown to the extent that they were invited to support The Kooks on their European tour where they played shows in venues which scaled up to a 7000 people capacity. More accomplishments soon followed: their debut single ‘Junk Food Forever’ was released on their ownGoth Cruise label, while a homecoming set at theReading Festival’s BBC Introducing stage proved to be a triumphant moment which demonstrated that they’re ready to take on the rest of the world.
