London based singer – songwriter, Amy Syed is set to release a new single on the 2nd of December 2016. If you haven’t heard her rich, honeyed tones before, check out ‘Lonely Love’, the haunting follow-up to the acclaimed debut and Record Of The Day ‘You Go To My Head’, which was co-written with Bruno Major and recorded in Wales over the Summer.

Beautiful, spaced-out and uplifting, this is 21st century dream pop at it’s very best, and sounds like nothing else around right now.
A highly respected and established session and backing singer for several prominent acts over the last few years, it’s only recently that Syed has emerged at the front of the stage to play a handful of successful shows in and around London.

Influenced by a diverse range of artists from Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald to Daft Punk, Robyn and Sebastian, Amy and her long-time collaborators Ali Thynne (MNEK, EKKAH) on drums and Royal Academy graduate, Peter Lee, on keyboards are now ready to share a very distinctive and unique sound to a larger and unsuspecting audience.

Currently in the studio putting the finishing touches to a new EP, the trio are set to announce live dates in the very near future.
