It might seem like all positivity got lost between lockdowns and unrest, lost in search of the get-togethers that haven't happened for way too long. Yet its always been there, and Amarte is a compelling proof. Compelling as in: The glandular burst that lights up our brains on the first sunny day of spring after a long and dark winter. As a reaction to the bleak year that lies behind us the sound of Amarte's debut album "Amore Amore" is best described as undiluted musical positivity. Positivity in all shapes and colors, because from the symphonic opening track to the banging zest of Riding The Storm to the balearic dopeness of Smoothie there's a stunning variety of it. Carried along on the undertow of classic song structures and using vocals as a medium of emotion, Amarte leans strongly towards the sensual catchiness of Pop while planning along on its very own version of uplifting groove.
