Amber Arcades today releases a brand new single and video for ‘Where Did You Go.’
The video completes a three part trilogy of videos directed by Elliott Arndt.
Part 1 features the track ‘Goodnight Europe’ and part 2 features the track ‘Simple Song’, the resulting three part story aims to give a deeper understanding of the band’s upcoming second album, ‘European Heartbreak’, due for release on 28th September.
The videos collate Annelotte De Graaf‘s thinking around what’s currently happening in Europe, love, the passing of time and how the three intertwine. All featuring music from the up and coming record.
Annelotte says the following about the third single ‘Where Did You Go’:
“This song is about the irrational nature of love. You need to keep telling yourself you believe in it in order for it to exist at all. On the other hand, maybe it’s a cool thing because of that. If it were more “real” it would just be another “thing” you can choose, like a brand of peanut butter. And I’m not so sure about whether always being able to choose all the things makes us better or happier in the end.”
About the video, she added:
“In this final part the characters are making a final attempt to put their future together in the hands of destiny, or the universe, or whatever. I’m not sure it works out so well in this case.”

‘European Heartbreak’ was recorded and co-produced in LA with Chris Cohen from Deerhoof and in Richmond, Virginia with Trey Pollard (Natalie Prass, The Waterboys, Bedouine) who oversaw horn and string overdubs from Spacebomb.
