LES AGAMEMNONZ RELEASE NEW ALBUM “AMATEURS”

French instrumental outfit Les Agamemnonz have shared their new album Amateurs – out today via Hi-Tide Recordings. Ahead of the release of Amateurs the band has shared singles “Artemis,” “Xiphias”, “Mount Capitola,and “No Shoes No Service,” which highlight the French band’s American influence. On the new album the band shares, “We see Amateurs as a real turning point in the way we can produce music. It’s not a drastic change, it’s rather fluid actually, but we allowed ourselves to work on things only for the record, rearranged existing tunes to fit a different mood (as we did here with “Artemis”) and enjoyed more and more the idea of arrangement. We can’t wait to have listenersfrom all over the world get an ear on this album, eyes on the cover, and to play brand new tunes live really soon!” Fans can purchase and stream Amateurs now at found.ee/amateurs

Playing on the ambivalence of the word that designates the enamored connoisseur as well as the non-professional, Amateurs is paradoxically the band’s most ambitious production, both in writing, arrangements, orchestration, recording. In addition to references to their spiritual father Joe Meek (“Artemis”), or to a more French legacy (“Conseils de la Fée des Lilas”), it is unquestionably their most “American” record, with clear references to the golden age of studios (“Theme from ‘Amateurs’ “), to a certain cinema (“Redwood Heights”), or to more personal experiences of touring the United States (“No Shoes No Service”). It is in all coherence that this album is also their first collaboration with the American label Hi-Tide Recordings.
