Single Review: Amaryllis – Thorn

London pop rockers Amaryllis have just unveiled the new video for their single Thorn. The track is taken from the band’s upcoming debut album Nova Initium (Which is Latin for ‘A New Beginning’ in case you were wondering) which is set to be released on the 13th May.

Speaking on the new album frontwoman Sante Moonie had this to say;

“We feel with everything we write, naturally we want it to always be better than what we last wrote. No one wants to hear the same thing twice. Compared to our last two EP’s, this new record shows exactly that. We spent more time on creating exactly how we wanted to sound and its listeners can expect a much more mature and developed Amaryllis sound.”

The track itself is a cracker. The band are all about emotion, unorthodox guitar work, soaring vocal harmonies and mega hooks and that’s exactly what you get from Thorn. Everything is aimed towards that chorus and it delivers time and time again. The song however still manages to maintain a bit of a rocky edge and treads that line between pop song and rock tune really well. The song is my introduction to the band I have to say that they have certainly caught my attention.

You can catch the band at the following live dates, although as of about half an hour ago the album launch show is now sold out. A gig which also features website favourites Eva Plays Dead so if you’ve got tickets for that you are a very lucky human being indeed.
