We’re barely over three months into 2018, and the year has so far been chock-full of surprises of every variety. So in that spirit, dear reader, I am going to utter a sentence so thoroughly unexpected that you may not have seen it spoken OR written in well over a decade. And the sentence is: “The new Hoobastank single is pretty good!”
Amarionette are not a band to take hits lying down. Only a short time after announcing the departure of vocalist Quin White, the band are already back with the new single “Charm”, featuring singer-songwriter Andres. I got the chance to speak to guitarist Nick Raya about the new collaboration, as well as the band’s future.
A year after releasing their sophomore album Repeating History, Amarionette are back with the phenomenal new single “Modern Disco.” The infectious, funky jam puts the spotlight squarely on the band’s superb pop songcraft, channeling Michael Jackson and The 1975 within the framework of a groovy instrumental that retains the band’s technicality. However, the real star of the track is lead singer Quin White, who channels vintage MJ and flawlessly delivers some of the catchiest earworms you’re likely to hear all year. Don’t sleep on this one.
