Amber Arcades have announced a new album ‘European Heartbreak’ and are heading out on a pre album release tour this June.

A Film by Amber Arcades – Part 1 of 3 Music – Goodnight Europe Director – Elliott Arndt “A lot of the themes Annelotte de Graaf has written about for her record struck very close to home. What I found especially poignant in her lyrics is how it’s mostly through a study of herself and a nonchalant look outside her window that Annelotte makes us get a sense of the political turmoil that’s affecting her. In that respect, I was interested in trying to represent this sense of “banality” in a young adult couple in 2018, who are not only the fruit of a vibrant European Union, but also perhaps the ones most directly affected by its dismantling. I wanted to depict a static, homesick, glitchy romance. And here it is, trying all it can to grow against, amongst and beyond the constricting geographical barriers surrounding it.”

Simple Song, the second part of a three video trilogy, “which tells a modern European (love) story, touching on various thoughts and feelings that inspired my new record.” Musically, Simple Song shows the gentle progress of Amber Arcades’ sound; the driving rhythms and easy guitars remain, yet it’s a crisper sound, each idea more distinct and bolder than ever before, there’s even room for some delightful horn interludes courtesy of the Spacebomb house-band. As with all her best track the joy here is in the contrast, the breezy sound juxtaposing the sadness in the vocal, the confident musical decisions contradicting the doubt written large in the lyrics.
