AMA // MIZU - Waiting Room (Face To Face)
Having previously collaborated with the likes of EERA and Kelly Lee Owens, AMA // MIZU unveils his debut track to the world. AMA//MIZU is a feeling, a moment of uncertainty. Inspired by the escapist rhythm of electronic music and the vivid narratives of folk, between the loud flicker of a light and the overarching silence. This dichotomy is where lies AMA//MIZU’s core, reflective and yet hyperactive. A sliding world of shadowy textures, cavernous sub-bass and hauntingly melodic vocals.
Seeking inspiration as diverse as the likes of Dirty Projectors, I:Cube and Scott Walker, AMA//MIZU is defined by a desire to seek authentic and unusual sounds. Whether a circuit bent drum machine or pieces of wood, anything becomes a tool in his South London based bedroom studio. It is from the confinement of this small space, surrounded by urban settings, that the songs take shape before being enhanced and deconstructed by a trio of live musicians, and finally brought to life in the mixing room, with the complicity of Ash Workman (Metronomy, Christine And The Queens.)
