With a hundred thousand unique monthly listeners worldwide, Amy Root, Dutch duo Lukas Amer and Sjoerd Huissoon, returned with a new single, Four Times Four in February 2023 after their last EP “The Knot” in November 2022. With their previous EP’s Lynn (2018), Elif (2019) and Ava (2021) they have already shown their immense capability of making music that compels great visual, mental and almost mythical images triggered by their electronic beats and harmonies. Lukas and Sjoerd who are both from The Hague, already crossed each other’s paths in the past. Later on, in 2018 when they met again at the Conservatory of Rotterdam, they started working together as Amy Root. Since then the duo constantly finds ways to improve their new sounds with productions that evoke emotions of euphoria and melancholia.
Amy Root’s colour palette is music. The colors they compose with are things such as their childhood, family, friends, memories, insecurities and adventures. Soon Lukas and Sjoerd felt how they shared this specific approach on making music, both being inspired by diverse global artists such as Jamie XX, Rival Consoles, Overmono, Thom Yorke, Danvers, Machinedrum and Fela Kuti. This made their musical partnership reciprocal, communal and intimate on many levels.
Amy Root’s strong connection results in a powerful energy that is present when they produce and compose together. Earlier they performed at multiple events such as Eurosonic, Down The Rabbit Hole, Best Kept Secret, Catch, Amsterdam Dance Event and Wildeburg. Upcoming months they will surprise us again with compelling sounds coming from their new EP.
