‘Sometimes I Forget You’re Human Too’ is the debut EP from Leeds-based artist Amber Strawbridge, someone who records under the name Bored At My Grandmas House. In the same vein as a brace of well-received singles throughout 2020, ‘Sometimes I Forget You’re Human Too’ is a collection of five warm, lo-fi studio recordings influenced by shoegaze, dream-pop and indie-rock. Nothing about the sound of Leeds-based songwriter Amber Strawbridge is new. Let’s make this clear from the start. But if you happen to be a lover of warm, dreamy indie-rock with shoegaze like me, her alter ego Bored At My Grandmas House might bring a few moments of delight into your cold and grey lockdown reality. And yes, I fall for that sound less often than I used to in the past but occasionally it happens and the sounds of all the singles of her upcoming EP Sometimes I Forget You’re Human Too  so far really spoke to me. This title-track I’m showing you right here is a perfect example. And yes, she also has a really great artist name which definitely roots in a real-life-experience because she started to write songs when she was in fact bored at that said place. The EP is out next week, please give it a spin.

Debut EP from Leeds based 19 year old Amber Strawbridge (Aka Bored At My Grandmas House). Starting out as an exercise in passing time when she was quite literally bored at her Grandma’s place. Playing all the instruments and self-recording most of the EP at home, Amber took the tracks to Alex Greaves (Working Men’s Club, Bdrmm) at the Nave studio for live drums and some final mixing flourishes, leaving an EP full of lo-fi charm but with a studio feel.

Inspired by Slowdive, Wolf Alice and Alvvays, Sometimes I Forget You’re Human Too showcases Amber’s singular vision of indie-pop, on an EP that deals with topics like humanity, nostalgia and the current refugee crisis.
