NOTTINGHAM rockers Amber Run are back on the road after flexing their with brand new track ‘Fickle Game’.
The UK four-piece are also readying to release their sophomore album ‘For a Moment, I Was Lost’, a 12-track chronicle of their interval between the last, packed with moments of expansive beauty & full-blooded raw emotion.
Front man Joe Keogh said: “Fickle Game is about self-reflection in the music industry – how being in a band can, if you let it, stop being spontaneous and easy and instead become overly political and eventually exhausting.
“We have always believed in evolution as a band. Not reinvention so much as taking what’s already there and making it better. As students in Nottingham, we would sit and say “we’ll be the band we want to be by the 4th album”. Somewhere along the way, we forgot that evolution takes time. We forgot that any new experience has a learning curve.
“The new album trims the fat from our previous music, and get down to the bare bones of the songs. We’re songwriters, and where 5AM was a collection of songs written in our youth, these new songs are, for us, a timely response to more recent experiences.”
To support the new album, Amber Run have confirmed a string of shows which sees Bristol-based boy-girl duo Meadowlark support.
Meadowlark released their debut EP in 2015 and a series of standalone singles throughout 2016, steadily gaining themselves a reputation for their captivating pop melodies and lush production. Signed to Believe Recordings, the band will release their debut album in 2017.
