The best kept secret in music

Press


"the five track demo is a mix of emotions, instruments and indeed thoughts and feelings... if the production was a little tighter on the demo I would be able to offer a more substantial review but for now I will say that a lot of work goes into this project and many parts remind me of other bands (and possibly influences) such as David Bowie, Placebo and Nine Inch Nails... I wouldn't mind catching a live performance where the atmosphere of the melodies could be captured..."

"Thanks for the cds. I listened to yours. It sounds fucked up. I like that. I like when the lady sings. I didn't like the guy voice.. Then I liked it. I think this stuffs cool. I like the graininess and noise." - Swirlies - New York band


"they're like nothing else you've heard, I like them a lot!" - WVYC radio

Bio

Over the past three years AMY BLUE have mixed conventional songwriting with unnatural digital harmonies to great effect. Developing from a tentative experiment with genres into a full-time crusade to push as many boundaries as possible - the band has strived to create something NEW and UNHEARD and ultimately communicate a message of hope in hopeless times.

They draw influences from far and wide: the noise and showmanship of Trail of Dead, the synthetic sounds of Psychic TV, early Cure and Killing Joke; combined with the tragic urgency of Elliot Smith and immediate rock sounds of Husker Du.

Simon comes from an alt-metal background and has performed both acoustically and electronically as Evol-i. Jean-Paul has in the past recorded acoustics mixed with damaging electronica as Recrimination - their combined energies are now devoted to their AMY BLUE project.

Recent activity has seen the band support Miss Black America twice in a month and play gigs with Popular Workshop and The Early Years among others and are developing their live identity rapidly with a brash energetic (& ex. loud) sonic attack that is sets them apart from most bands. New material pushes the envelope creating a unique blend of raw punk, elegant space rock and bombastic digital distractions.

January 2006 saw their first fully-produced four track EP released and recieved well by their online fanbase and has had radioplay on US college radio. They are currently promoting it through a series of live shows around the UK and recording new material for their debut album due early 2007.

They have also had 'The Language of Ghosts' included on the soundtrack to Colin Bishop's Lynchian film 'Screaming Blue Murder', released July 2006.
