Short by Amplifier’s standards at eleven songs and 45 minutes, the band have focused their dexterities into brief bursts of genre-spinning sound. “Mystoria doesn’t aspire to emulate any of its predecessors, ” Balamir says, “but I suppose like Echo Street the approach to making it is a lot simpler - it's just about the songs, pure and simple. We’d gone back to just trying to write great songs and melodies, and that's where we’ve decided to stay.”
With a career that spans almost 1000 gigs of every conceivable size over 14 years and 8 releases, including the behemoth double album The Octopus, which has come to be regarded as a modern classic, Amplifier have by this point progressed past being simply a band and have become a zen-like state of being.
Continents come and go.
Amplifier will still exist.
Amplifier will still melt your face.
