Considered as one of the most inspired and inventive current young Belgian bands, Amatorski were formed in Ghent by singer/keyboardist Inne Eysermans, guitarist/vocalist Sebastiaan Van den Branden, bass & keyboard player Hilke Ros and drummer Christophe Claeys, and immediately achieved wide recognition in the Benelux with their self-produced, self-released Same Stars We Shared EP.

Inspired by the letters exchanged by Inne's grand-parents during World War II, the EP's opening track "Come Home" conquered the local charts, got airplay on all national radio stations, and was used in a commercial for a famous brand of water.

Then came the TBC album, a beautifully arranged suite of songs which weaves electronic & acoustic ingredients with delicate orchestrations around Inne's hypnotic voice. The album was again created in the band's studio in Ghent, and mixed in London by Darren Allison (known for his work with Belle & Sebastian, Efterklang and The Divine Comedy). The album ascended to #5 in the Belgian charts (a rare feat for a totally self-released album), and earned the band nominations in several categories at the Belgian Music Industry Awards.

In April 2014, Amatorski released their second album "from clay to figures", an inspiring collection which once again displays their ability to create moving songs, set in captivating, beautifully-crafted soundscapes, permeated with their trademark melancholy and elegance.

The album appeared in the wake of an eventful year 2013, which saw the international release of their debut "tbc" on Crammed, a first series of tours around Europe (which brought them an ever-growing crowd of devoted followers), and several side-projects showcasing the band's seemingly boundless versatility and creativity, including the launch of their award-winning interactive online project "Deleting Borders", the composition of several soundtracks, and the release of "Impatience", a DVD documenting a live performance of their original soundtrack for an experimental film from 1928.

Amatorski was described as "the best Belgian act around at the moment" by The Guardian (UK), while Les Inrockuptibles raved about the band's recent show at the Reeperbahn Festival, "extremely classy... refined, delicate, melodic, subtle: the most beautiful concert of the evening". The French magazine went on to compare the band's "absolutely delicious atmospheric pop" to the music of Sufjan Stevens, Portishead and Sparklehorse, and other writers have evoked Sigur Ros or The Cocteau Twins.
