Future Dust is set for release on May 24th
The Amazons have announces that their brand new album Future Dust will be released on 24th May on Fiction Records, alongside revealing new single ‘Doubt It’.
“We were searching for a heavier sound and we found it by delving back through the blues,” says singer Matthew Thomson. “From Led Zeppelin, we discovered Howlin’ Wolf and immersed ourselves in his back catalogue. I read Hellfire, the Jerry Lee Lewis biography, and fell in love with the Biblical language that was used to describe his ‘devil music’.
“As much as the songs, it was the stories and characters that we loved. Playing boogie-woogie piano in murky clubs sounds pretty tame now, but back then, it was raw and dangerous. We wanted to capture that with a dirtier, grittier, sexier sound.”
The new single is a hip swaggering, scorcher of a song about a romantic encounter that encapsulates the musical journey that The Amazons have been on over the past two years. Thomson has said of the track that “Doubt It is about being on the edge of making a potentially stupid decision due to lust-induced blindness. It addresses the lingering doubts, the residue of morals and succumbing to the temptations.”
