Amethysts Offer Atmospheric Remix Of Loome’s ‘Talking To Strangers’: East Anglian duo Amethysts offer their ambient-electronic take on Loome’s recent single ‘Talking To Strangers’ with a new remix (due March 22nd).
Featuring guest vocals from Oktae, the original single is given a fresh atmospheric touch by Amethysts, layering warming synthesizers, sampling, and subtle guitar lines with layers of processed vocal harmonies and spacious reverbs. Bringing an emotive, haunting tone, the new remix serves to contrast the original’s upbeat nature and pull out the track’s melancholic undertones whilst retaining the infectious natures of the lead vocals.
Working with acclaimed producer Shuta Shinoda (Hot Chip, Ghostpoet, Daughter) and labels including RAMP Recordings (James Blake Jamie XX) and Manimal Vinyl (War Paint, Bat For Lashes), Dream Pop duo Amethysts use airy synthesisers, biting guitars and deep electronic bass to build emotional soundscapes underneath Clarice & Simon’s delicate vocal harmonies. Renowned for their uniquely crafted brand of atmospheric indie-electronica-come-dream-pop, the pair have built a glittering catalogue of tracks showcased across their recently released self-titled debut album.
Having gained features in the likes of Clash, 1883 Magazine, The Line of Best Fit, DIY, The Telegraph, Earmilk, Atwood Magazine and PopMatters, Amethysts have racked up over 1.5 million plays on Apple Music, hundreds of thousands of plays on Spotify and gained radio play across the likes of BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 6 Music, Amazing Radio, Kerrang Radio and BBC Introducing. No strangers to the festival circuit, the duo have also played sets at Latitude Festival, Secret Garden Party and BBC Introducing Live as well as opening for Anna Meredith, Bessie Turner and Nothing But Thieves among others.
