Emerging Reading-based quartet The Amazons have unveiled a new video for their latest track ‘Ultraviolet.’ The track has been debuted on Radio 1 by Huw Stephen (subbing for Annie Mac), and is the latest track released off their debut EP Don’t You Wanna? on 9th October, on their own label Goth Cruise Records. The Amazons will embark on their first headline UK tour this coming October.

The explosive track is led up by a pummelling drum beat, driven along with frontman Matt Thomson’s distinctive vocals. Overflowing with the dynamism of the band, ‘Ultraviolet’ projects the frustration feelings of late night tail-chasing, creating an instantly infectious, youthful sing-along inducing anthem.
The video for the track reflects the band’s own experience growing up in a small town, finding escape in music while stuck in their bedrooms. You can watch it here.
Since their arrival to a growing fan base with first demo ‘Something in the Water’ last year, The Amazons have quickly generated a zealous following. Their first single ‘Junk Food Forever’ received instant support from radio presenters Annie Mac, Huw Stephens, and Jo Goods’ Shock of the New, as well as a featured slot on XFM’s ‘Songs of The Week’.
The track-listing for Don’t You Wanna? is:
Junk Food Forever
Millions (The Party)
Something In The Water
Don’t You Wanna? is produced & mixed by Catherine Marks (Wolf Alice, Foals, White Lies).
