The Amazons - Nightdriving
Since first springing up on my radar, The Amazons have had an impressive 12 months to say the least as they steadily rise through the ranks. Here they return with their latest single Nightdriving, a soaring vocal masterpiece that perfectly captures their angsty euphorically blended guitars and striking momentum. "Night Driving is about when we first passed our driving tests and were driving around country roads in the early hours of the morning" explains frontman Matt Thomson. "We didn’t really know where we were going or much about life in general…not knowing what was around the corner". Take a listen for yourselves below.
