"Amatorski - "From clay to figures" review"

"From clay to figures is a gorgeous set of tunes, one that plays
all the cards one would expect a group of this kind to play—but does
so exceptionally well. Cuts like album highlight “wild birds” is
exactly the kind of song to make doing the most mundane tasks seem
life-changing and significant. Suffice it to say, this record’s United
States release couldn’t come any sooner. " - Popmatters

"Album Review: Amatorski – “From Clay To Figures”"

"Already well known in their home country Belgium, Amatorski’s
cinematic, artistic post-rock should have no problem converting us
Westerners to rabid fans in a way that we’ve embraced Sigur Ros and
mum. Sounding very Icelandic in their lo-fi, whimsical, frosty
elegance, the fuller guitars here complement the vintage keys and
electronica moments, as they drift, wander and reflect in
experimentally beautiful ways. This sounds exactly like the cover art-
mysterious, slightly ominous and an indescribeable journey into
resplendent realms." - New Noise Magazine

It goes without saying that the Belgian band Amatorski is unique in its kind. Combining an enormous versatility with a consistent and captivating sound is their trademark. After their recent work on soundtracks and on multimedia project 'Deleting Borders', after touring all around Europe last year, they will be releasing their new album "From Clay To Figures" in April 2014 (on Crammed Discs).

In 2010 the Belgian audience fell in love with their debut EP 'Same Stars We Shared', including the radio hit 'Come Home'. A year later, the Benelux release of their atmospheric album 'tbc' exceeded already high expectations. In 2013 Amatorski was signed to Crammed Discs for a worldwide release of the 'tbc'/'Same Stars We Shared' combo. The band toured extensively, from Germany to France, from Spain to the UK, from Switzerland to Slovakia, Austria and Hungary. In the meantime they created soundtracks for television and for a Dutch movie, and their acclaimed interactive multimedia project 'Deleting Borders' explored crossovers between music, internet and video art.

The new album was created over the course of last year. During a couple of months, a new batch of songs was moulded in a variety of places, at home, in the band's studio and on the road. Songwriter Inne Eysermans searched for solitude and seclusion in New York and Hamburg to work on sketches and new ideas and sent them to guitar player Sebastiaan Van den Branden, who added new layers and sounds. Through their continuous interplay, the new songs gradually took their definitive form.

As a band Amatorski is constantly going through a growth process. On the edge of knowing and not knowing, a story unfolds, abstract thoughts become concrete and a new musical landscape takes shape. The new songs sound less secretive, more open and more hopeful. Amatorski naturally keep their eyes on the future, without trying too hard to be futuristic. As artists, they not only meticulously elaborate their songs, but are also continually remodeling their own musical identity.
