Manchester's Amida are an indiepop 5 piece, triumphantly celebrating the glories of classic bedroom recordings of the 90s indie scene. Think Pavement, early Sebadoh, or the poppier moments of The Pixies.
After playing for the How Does It Feel To Be Loved? club night in London, Manchester indie/pop 5-piece Amida were featured on the ‘Kids At The Club’ compilation by the HDIF label. Their debut EP ‘Arts and Crafts’ was released on Plastilina Records early in 2007, which was described as ‘jangle pop harking back to Postcard’s golden days’ and ‘a masterclass in sun-flecked, Pixies-inspired pop economy’. They brought their unique and infectious brand of indie/pop to the Indietracks Festival in 2008 and have since supported bands such as the School, Camera Obscura, The Primitives and played New York Popfest ‘If The Wave Loves Two Suns’ was released on WeePOP! Records in 2009, and this will be their third EP and their first release of 2011!
