Amanda X share new single "Guatemala," team up with Siltbreeze for first LP

It’s a time-tested formula. You wanna be cool? Like, icy, aloof, black leather jacket cool? Add an “X” after your first name. That’s how you know this new release from Amanda X is gonna be cool — I mean, if you couldn’t already guess from it being on Siltbreeze.

Now, in a shocking turn of events, Amanda X isn’t just one real haughty Teutonic woman. It’s three North Philadelphian women: Cat Park (guitar), Tiff Yoon (drums), and Kat Bean (bass). Together the three-piece make the kind of warm, grungy Raincoats/Sleater-Kinney-esque rock that gives a loving nod to the 90s. Back in 2012, they self-released the Ruin the Moment EP and started opening for the likes of Dum Dum Girls, Parquet Courts, and Marnie Stern. Their new LP Amnesia drops July 28. You can check out the single “Guatemala” below (via Noisey):
