Amy – Retro (EP)

Those awesome lads from Amy recently sent us their EP, ‘Retro’, and, quite simply, it’s superb. ‘Retro’ kicks off with ‘Static Situation’ which epitomizes Amy’s dynamic and snappy sound. The hooky, feel-good melody snares you from the off and drives you nicely into ‘Where Do We Go From Here?’

‘Where Do We Go From Here?’ is more mellow with a beat that gets the head nodding and has lyrics that are entirely relatable. These guys know how to produce a catchy tune and the same can be said of the third track, ‘Hotel Atlantica (That Magaluf Song)’ – which we’ve had the pleasure of hearing live and can vouch wholeheartedly for their stage-shaking energy – with its thumping beat and lively guitar, this track could easily become an immense holiday anthem!

Track four is ‘Starry Night’ which follows ‘Hotel Atlantica’ beautifully with its picky guitar and strings. The orchestral sound gives the track an ethereal feel enhanced by the haunting vocals. There’s also a cheeky guitar solo which can only ever be a good thing!

The fifth and final track, ‘They Don’t Talk In Tokyo’, hits you straight in the face and wakes you up from the dreamlike state that ‘Starry Night’ evokes. It’s the ideal track to end on as it makes you fling yourself around the living room with bad ass dance moves (ok, that could just be us) and leaves the listener wanting more. Overall, this EP is a brilliant offering from the band. If you want a comparison in terms of sound, there is a tinge of Jimmy Eat World about them, but they can definitely hold their own and they clearly know who they are as a band.

The hot weather is finally here and to celebrate, we bring you this feel-good, immense summer tune from Amy!

Hotel Atlantica has a fresh, hooky sound that gets you instantly moving to the music. There is an awesome use of dynamics in this track that keeps the listener involved (and imagining that they are indeed living it large in Magaluf!). The mix of electric and acoustic guitar really adds to the tone of the song which is further embellished by the catchy rhythm section – check out the bass riffage!
