"TBC" double-pack CD now out in Germany & the Benelux



The mesmerizing young Belgian band have just completed a successful first tour in Germany, where the press has warmly welcomed the release of their TBC album ("One of the most important albums of the week" in this week's Der Spiegel). 

The album (which includes their "Same Stars We Shared EP" as a bonus CD) will soon be out in the UK, France and the rest of Europe.

TBC is a beautifully arranged suite of songs which weaves electronic & acoustic ingredients with delicate orchestrations. it was 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 song Come Home (off the EP) is getting airplay on several radio stations in Germany, and is the soundtrack for an ongoing ad campaign for the Spa table water, currently on heavy rotation on radio & TV in Belgium & the Netherlands.

Amatorski are now completing an original soundtrack for Dutch feature film "In Your Name", and will resume touring around Europe from March on.

From the press:

"The best Belgian act around at the moment" (The Guardian, UK)

"Perfection on all fronts" (OOR, NL)

"Extremely classy... refined, delicate, melodic, subtle: the most beautiful concert of the evening" (Les Inrockuptibles, France, about the band's show at the Reeperbahn Festival).

The French magazine went on to compare the band's "absolutely delicious atmospheric pop" to the music of Sufjan Stevens, Portishead and Sparklehorse, while other writers have evoked Sigur Ros or The Cocteau Twins.
