Reading four-piece The Amazons burst onto the new music radar with Stay With Me, a raucous burst of power chord energy, in March this year.

Produced by Tom Dalgety (Royal Blood, The Maccabees), the song was their first release after signing to the prestigious indie label Fiction Records, home to the likes of Tame Impala, The Maccabees and Nick Mulvey.

Over the next eight months, The Amazons emerged as one of the most exciting young bands to watch, garnering new fans and word-of-mouth praise through their energetic performances and an explosive sound.

The quartet arrived at their current line-up in 2014, working night shifts in supermarkets to fund their music, while releasing nascent recordings like Something In The Water and Junk Food Forever.

Championed by BBC Music Introducing, they filtered through to Huw Stephens and Annie Mac’s Radio 1 shows, and won a slot on the Introducing Stage at Reading and Leeds in 2015.

After signing to Fiction late last year, they re-recorded all their material, and have been hitting the road with The Strypes and Jimmy Eat World to hoover up new fans.
