Starting life in the mid 2010s as an emo-rock revival outfit, Amends soon recalibrated and expanded the project to incorporate a sound more focused on alt-country, heartland rock and folk-punk. As a result, Amends' 2019 debut So Far From Home and 2021 sophomore Tales of Love, Loss and Outlaws have served as the band's most realised efforts to date.
After playing shows extensively in support of both albums, including supporting Memphis rockers Lucero, Pennsylvania punks The Menzingers and curating their own mini festival “Best In The West”, the Western Sydney band have turned their attention to the next chapter, with plans to take their endearing brand of story-telling overseas in 2022.
A few years short of a decade, Amends are nigh-on unrecognisable from their origins. They now stand as sharper, stronger and far more ambitious than the band they used to be. Their drive, musical creativity and rambunctious live sets demonstrates as such, leading by example and solidifying their status as one of Australian music’s most unique and compelling prospects.
