Amaya Laucirica is a musician, songwriter and band of the same name. Her fourth album, Rituals will be released in early 2018 by UK label Opposite Number.
Amaya’s debut album Sugar Lights was released in 2008. Sugar Lights was critically lauded and selected as RRR’s Album of the Week. Overseas interest in the record led to Amaya being invited to play the North by Northeast music festival in Toronto, Canada in the same year.
In 2010, Amaya released Early Summer, which was selected as JJJ’s Album of the Week and led to Amaya begin invited to open national tours with acts including Blonde Redhead, Mark Lanegan and Adalita.
Her third album, Sway was released in 2014 and supported by national tour dates covering both regional areas and capital cities. In addition to these dates, Amaya also performed shows at MONA, White Night and Melbourne Music Week.
In 2015, Amaya relocated to Germany where she resided for several months while working on her fourth album, Rituals. Recorded on her return to Australia in late 2016, Rituals was produced by John Lee at Phaedra Studios and mastered by David Walker at Stepford Mastering.
More Than This is the first single from the album. It will be released digitally on September 15th.
