STREAM NEW SONG ‘FICKLE GAME’
NEW ALBUM ‘FOR A MOMENT, I WAS LOST’ OUT FEBRUARY 10
+ UK TOUR BEGINS FEBRUARY 2017
Gearing up for the release of their sophomore album ‘For A Moment, I Was Lost’ on February 10th, and their headline tour the same month, Amber Run have revealed their new track ‘Fickle Game’. The song is both chilling and refreshing; perfect for the winter mist upon us this January. The track is also accompanied by a brand new visual – simple, raw and unstaged, it allows the effortless vocal do its utmost to fill each second with an everlasting intimacy.
Fickle Game is the lead single from the band’s forthcoming second album. A follow up to their 2015 debut’5AM’ , ‘For A Moment I Was Lost’ is defined by fear, anger, and most crucially, progress. The album was born after a ‘eureka’ moment in Pembrokeshire, where all four members decided to retreat after parting ways with their label and drummer. In this same remote spot years before, the first songs for ‘5AM’ were written. However this time, music wasn’t even on the agenda. “ We laughed solidly for four days, came back and started work,” says frontman Joe Keogh. “ It was a clean slate.” From that point, they were reinvigorated. They knew that they were going to make another record, regardless of label involvement.
Speaking about the track itself, the band explain: “’ 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.”
Also on the album is track “Haze”, which doubles as an instant download for pre-ordering the record early. You can listen to this now.
