The Amsterdams


The Amsterdams do a little of everything - like lazy melodies ("Where To Go") to indie pop ("Fireworks") to sounding like your favourite indie rockers. The band's lyrics cover the whole range from disaster to nostalgia. "Taking Care Of Anna", for example, is a story-in-a-song about the bombing of a cafe; something you'd never guess from its bouncy riffs. If indie rock ever makes it in Romania, it’ll be because of The Amsterdams and their relentless pursuit. Read more on Last.fm
The Amsterdams do a little of everything - like lazy melodies ("Where To Go") to indie pop ("Fireworks") to sounding like your favourite indie rockers. The band's lyrics cover the whole range from disaster to nostalgia. "Taking Care Of Anna", for example, is a story-in-a-song about the bombing of a cafe; something you'd never guess from its bouncy riffs. If indie rock ever makes it in Romania, it’ll be because of The Amsterdams and their relentless pursuit. And because bands like The Dandy Warhols dig them and regard them as the best band in the land.

As they make it pretty clear on the MySpace page, they’re here to do more than just rock out; they’re here to “take the cars out of every garage band”. Whatever that means, it sounds good enough to get behind. Their second studio album, "Electromagnetica", was released on 31 March 2011 and on 1 April as a digital download. The album was partly recorded in Next Dog Studio, and was mastered by Harris Newman, who is also known for his work with Wolf Parade and Arcade Fire. Electromagnetica is produced and mixed by Electric Brother and features Dan Boeckner (Wolf Parade, Handsome Furs), who plays guitar on "This Burial Ground's For Two". “Sneakers and striped T-Shirts: there¹s some hard strumming going on in the garages of Bucharest.

These kids from Romania are highly strung. Thick guitar riffs, each song bringing a darker atmosphere. The Amsterdams are worthy symbols of a spirited, tortured rock scene.” EuropaVox 2008 DISCOGRAPHY "Automatic" (EP; 2008) "Adolessons" (2009) "Electromagnetica" (2011) "Winds Apart" (2014) "Eternity for Dummies" (2016) Read more on Last.fm.
