Writer / producer
Gold Spectacles are songwriter/producer duo Amie Pendarves and Robb Whiteman; specialising in writing track, topline, arrangement and production.
As writers Gold Spectacles are unconstrained by genre, transcending between pop, alternative, soul and R&B. Lyrically, they are both introspective and observational from astute pop culture references to empathetic evocations of love and desperation. As multi-instrumentalists, they take a proactive approach to the songwriting process building layers through a variety of electronic and organic instruments.
Robb and Amie cut their teeth in Scandinavia, writing with established artists including; Iselin (vocals on Alan Walker’s ‘Faded’), Maybon (Epic Oslo/Sony Music), Audur (Sony Music), Hanne Mjøen (Spinnin' Records), Alida, Henrik Høven (daWorks) and NOËP. Whilst honing their craft as songwriters, through their own artist project Gold Spectacles have received substantial Spotify editorial support with their music added to ‘New Music Friday’, ‘Chill Vibes’, ‘Indie Pop’, ‘New Pop Revolution’, ‘All New Indie’ amassing over 5 million streams.
In 2021, Gold Spectacles are aligning themselves within the emerging UK pop scene, with upcoming cuts with recent 70Hz signee Mysie (produced by Fraser T Smith) and SOFY who was runner up in the recent BBC Introducing R1 Live Lounge competition with their co-write ‘Strawberry Milkshake’.
