Canberra electronic producer, Amastro (real name Angus Murphy) has been makig some serious waves in the electronic scene over the past months. And the energetic young producer returns in full force dropping his independently released sophomore EP titled “Insecure Demons“!
The project has given Murphy the ability to explore some of his own insecurities and internal demons. Speaking to Stoney Roads about the EP, he said, “I really wanted to explore more of my spirituality and to be able to share my journey. This release includes a bunch of songs that I’ve wanted to listen to when I am chilling out but haven’t been available”.
Having been on the scene just over two years now, he has had countless opportunities playing on some of the biggest and most prestigious Australian stages. With a tour set to supplement the EP release, and a supporting set during Carmada’s club tour, Australians will have plenty of time to acquaint themselves with the young producer!
Check out a track-by-track review from the man himself below and stream Insecure Demons now!
It was the 5th show on tour with Boo Seeka & Bootleg Rascal. Alcohol & drugs were flowing, yet for a moment in greenroom chaos, I was sober & tranquil. I felt a dark presence so I started meditating. I asked for protection for my divine light when suddenly a tiger entered my minds eye and destroyed the darkness.
The track was inspired by the three days spent at Lost Paradise Festival, where I meditated in the forest and danced like a gypsy all night long. The track was referred to as the “mushie song” by Triple J listeners haha.
Constantly touring and juggling both projects Gold Member & Amastro, I started to self-destruct. Thought maybe I was just crazy and that there was no greater meaning to life/nothing matters but then I found meaning in the meaningless.
Pretty Scars is an ode to the broken like me. It’s about the beauty you find within yourself after self-destruction. The love we discover for the scars of our experiences and the strength in our weaknesses.
Catch Amastro in a city near you soon!
