Amo Amo

California WorldFest 2022 | Official Performer

Amo Amo

Amo Amo is a psychedelic dream pop band from Los Angeles, California.

Amo Amo’s instantly gratifying, euphoric compositions seem laser-focused on bringing a mess of earthlings into a space and getting them to move together like a single, pulsating organism.

Amo Amo formed in June 2017 when a group of friends — Omar Velasco, Justin Flint, Shane Mckillop and Alex Siegel — invited Love Femme for an impromptu session in Los Angeles with Jim James (My Morning Jacket). There had been a premonition that the five of them shared a sort of psychic bond that would lead to a revelation in sound. Amo Amo released their debut album, produced by Jim James, in 2019 and supported him on his tour, opening for My Morning Jacket at Red Rocks in August 2019.  In the past 3 years, the world has fallen under the spell of Amo Amo’s magical sound. Legendary mastering engineer Bob Ludwig says of their first record, “I really love these songs, they are stand outs of the past year for me… Amo Amo has made a very special album.” Jenny Eliscu (Rolling Stone, Sirius XM) says “Rarely do I come across a band with as strong a sense of self-identity as Amo Amo… their live show is ecstatic.” They released a new EP, Canta, in 2020.

A new LP will be released in 2022.  Amo Amo has been making waves – sharing the stage with Karen O & Danger Mouse, & opening for the likes of Poolside, Jonathan Wilson, Hailu Mergia, and Tropicalia legends Os Mutantes.  You will not see a crowd stand still at an Amo Amo show: people dance, it can’t be helped. They are not to be missed.
