Amber Run Announces New Single, Album and UK Tour

SEEN is looking forward very much to seeing Amber Run at the Forum Kentish Town on 25th February, the final date of their forthcoming UK tour. If you haven’t heard their wonderfully atmospheric pop then be sure to check out the new single Stranger. The accompanying black and white video is a delight:

The song’s narrative is centred on the necessity of suffering for your art. As the band says, it’s ‘about realising that sometimes you don’t get what you need but you’ll keep moving on regardless.’ Despite the suffering there is always hope.

Amber Run also has a new album in the works, the 12-track For a Moment I Was Lost. Thinking about the creative process behind Amber Run’s evolution from their roots in Nottingham, the band reflects that ‘somewhere along the way, we forgot that evolution takes time. We forgot that any new experience has a learning curve.’

It’s clearly been worth the wait since 5AM (their last album). The new work features pared-down music that gets right to the heart of the matter. Also on the album is the track Haze, which doubles as an instant download for pre-ordering the record early. You can listen to this now via Soundcloud:
