Therapeutic yet demanding, Amber Run’s discography hasn’t been one many people have paid much attention to where they deserve. The UK band uses a great deal of layered vocal harmony, described as indie-pop or rock with a soft orchestral undertone. Amber Run is a band to reach out for to slow down your heart beat. They tend to have music videos for their audience to grasp a deeper sense of the story line beyond the three and a half minutes of the song.
Sophomore album, “For A Moment, I Was Lost”, has just been released yesterday, February 10th. The collection depicts their ups and down in the last 8 months, lead vocalist, Joe Keogh explains in documentary for the album. With a concise and carefully purposeful message, the band hopes to mean something more than just music.
