Amethysts – My Love

Move over Jonas Blue, this is how to work with a classic structure.

Snippet and similarities are usual a cause to dismiss an indie group, quicker than they could ever respond. Amethysts’ My Love may use the eponymous guitar opening of Tracy Chapman’s Fast Car, but in the form of thumping bass that opens the track instead, Amethysts are immediately distanced from the cover track curse.

Pieced together with My Love’s separate intro (Diamonds), My Love flourishes into a post-pop beauty. With similarities linking Amethysts to the likes of The xx for the minimal, steady bass beat induced rhythm on My Love, together with the sing-ability of Broods’ choruses, this Suffolk duo’s debut track erupts into a supernova of inspiring, minimal indie pop beauty.

A steady flux of 1-2 beats and dripping guitars, layered meticulously together to create the sound of a four piece group; My Love’s monumental effort to subduing unnecessarily boisterous chart pop, and instead creating illusive, eruptive electronica, that is more transcending than simply just being loud, sees the Suffolk duo’s debut, set impossibly high standards for any future groups who chose to run a track with history in its rhythm.
