Amie Pendarves and Robb Whiteman (AKA Gold Spectacles) are a songwriting, production, and artist duo with a distinct focus on 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. Amie and Robb cut their teeth in Scandinavia, writing with established artists including Iselin (Alan Walker), 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, Viddy, Darla Jade, and SOFY; all of which have achieved notable radio (BBC R1, KCRW, etc.), DSP support, and major festival slots (Glastonbury, Reading, Leeds, Isle of Wight Festival). Recent achievements include receiving “The Hitmaker Fund” by the PRS Foundation and Spotify UK and gaining two “BBC Introducing Track(s) of the Week” on BBC Radio One.

Alongside their work as writer/producers, they have their own artist project, under the same name. Their music has been described as Baroque-Pop. To date, they have released 2 EPs and an album, gaining 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). In 2024, the duo will release the ‘part 2’ follow-up to their 2023 EP “More Heart Than Sense”.
