Amie Pendarves and Robb Whiteman (AKA Gold Spectacles) are a songwriting, production and artist duo with a penchant in left-of-centre pop. As multi-instrumentalists, their sonic palette toes the line between electronic and organic landscapes, blending the two parallels with an overarching focus on the craft and delivery of a song. 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), Hanne Mjøen (Spinnin' Records) and Alida (Katy Perry). Since 2021 Gold Spectacles have been working out of their South West London studio gaining recent cuts with artists including: Mysie, Fraser T Smith (Adele, Stormzy, Easy Life), Johnny Stimson, Trevis, NOËP, Darla Jade and SOFY; all of which have achieved notable radio (BBC R1, KCRW etc.) and DSP support. 2022 was a breakout year for Gold Spectacles as writer/producers culminating in the pair receiving “The Hitmaker Fund” by the PRS Foundation and Spotify UK.
Alongside their work as writer/producers, they have their own artist project which has gained notable Spotify playlistings (including Chill Vibes, All New Indie and New Music Friday UK), gathering support from radio (including BBC 6 Music, KCRW, Amazing Radio, CISM 89.3) and blogs (including Indie Shuffle, EARMILK, Hillydilly, Line of Best Fit).
