Amber Arcades have a brand new track ‘Goodnight Europe’ and a short film indicating news of a second record to come later this year.
‘Goodnight Europe’ is the first music from Amber Arcades Annelotte De Graaf since the release of 2016’s debut album ‘Fading Lines’ and last years ‘Cannonball’ EP.
Annelotte says the following about the track:
“I guess about half of it is me actually being worried about the current state of the Union. The other half is me kind of messing around with, and making fun of, this archetype of the tiresome existentialist academic in me.”
LISTEN TO ‘GOODNIGHT EUROPE’ HERE:
To coincide with the release of ‘Goodnight Europe’ is a short film directed by Elliot Arndt. The film reveals themes for the up and coming record, Elliot explains:
“A lot of the themes Annelotte wrote 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.”
WATCH THE FILM HERE:
This summer Amber Arcades will be performing live shows and appearing at a number of festivals in Europe.
