AmatrArt are due to release the double a-side single Mirror/Soft Skin on 8th April 2016 via Bloc+ Music. Subversively playing with the indie/electro dynamic, the band have carefully constructed a sound that embraces the immediacy of indie-pop, allied to a distinctively high brow ambient sound, all unified by the dreamy Mark Hollis (Talk Talk) style vocals produced by Jonathan Mullen.
When asked about where their music fits in today’s musical landscape, they said: ‘We’re not a typical indie band, our songs tend to be a little darker and we use a lot of electronic elements in our sound. Sometimes we really ramp it up and bring our full energy to songs but we can also bring it right down with a dreamier sound.’
