Currently Amycanbe is gearing up for their forthcoming four-track EP “White Slide” slated for release on April 19. Leading up the EP’s release, a live version of the title track ‘White Slide’ has been released to the public and presents is the track as a re-imagination of the ethereal original song. The “live” version is heavy with hard-hitting bass and grooves and breathes new life with the hypnotic and danceable synth lines, Francesca’s voice and intricate yet subtle production elements On ‘White Slide’, Amycanbe explains, “‘White Slide’ is a song originally started as an instrumental demo by Marco Trinchillo for a dance side-project. When Francesca Amati heard it, she immediately felt she wanted to sing and wrote the lyrics. The live version is very different and pushy; tremendously rearranged by the band as a whole, and is a great moment in the show for Amycanbe fans.”
