"Amethyst" is a song by the post punk band Phase. It was released as a single on August 1, 2013 forerunning their 2014 album the Wait[1] where it featured under a different mix.


Amethyst means sober but it's literal sense of the adjective describes someone that can't be intoxicated; from the Greek αμέθυστος (amethystos). The word's conception stems from a Greek myth in which the god of ebriety and excess, Dionysus, wanted to ravish a young virgin and goddess Artemis in an attempt to save the innocent girl crystallized her, while the wine drops from Dionysus' cup mixed with his tears, gave the crystal its purple-ish colour.[2]


Amethyst has gathered rave reviews from press and it established Phase in the area that they decided to relocate to.[3]

The song was hyping the first week it was released on last.fm charts Greece a short after they switched their home base to UK.[4][5]


The cover for Amethyst was designed by the Iranian artist Afsoon Shahriari responsible also for the song's lyric video, the upload of which coincided with the song's release.

It features a skeleton key decorated with an amethyst crystal, found on a shore's tidemark.
