WUM: First Impression:
“If you take the elements of Alternative Rock, New Age music, Folk, and 70’s progressive rock, you get the captivating and soothing blend of music by “Amarante” which I describe as “Progressive Dream Pop”. The music is comforting with a subtle edge in their lyrics of affirmation, yet free spirited at the same time. Favourite songs: Hallucination, Haunted Song, Into the Dark, Acceptance, The Manic, Wrong, Voyage through the void. Amarante are awesome!" ~ Stewart Brennan, World United Music
