After last night’s debut spin on Radio 1 by Huw Stephens, The Amazons today announce the release of latest single Nightdriving.
The track, produced by Catherine Marks (Wolf Alice, Foals), comes ahead of The Great Escape, where the band will take the stage on Thursday 19th May at The Hope & Ruin, 10.30PM.
“The Amazons… are already getting people hot under the collar with their rowdy rock’n’roll.”– Beat Magazine
“You don’t want to miss The Amazons’ – Huw Stephens
Earlier this month The Amazons were invited to join Huw Stephens’ for a BBC Introducing session at the Radio 1’s Maida Vale studio, where they performed Nightdriving, as well as Millions, Ultraviolet and recent single release Stay With Me. Watch the session here.
Speaking on Huw Stephens’ radio show, Thomson said: “Night Driving is about when we first passed our driving tests and were driving around country roads in the early hours of the morning. We didn’t really know where we were going or much about life in general…not knowing what was around the corner.”
Nightdriving follows first single Stay With Me, which received a Radio 1 premiere, championed by Annie Mac, Huw Stephen, and Steve Lamacq among others; and established The Amazons as an explosive new sound in a year which has seen the four Reading based friends emerge as a young band to watch, garnering new fans and word-of mouth praise through their dynamic live performances and explosive rock anthems.
