Everyone’s in love with Maggie Rogers’ Alaska, even Amber Run, who’ve offered up this gorgeous acoustic cover of her breakout single. The British band has announced a new digital EP arriving in late September on Dine Alone Records. The EP will feature two versions of songs from their current album ‘For A Moment, I Was Lost’ plus two cover songs, including this cozy strumming, intimately stripped down rendition of Alaska. Its wistful and melancholic, and well worthy of some long drawn out sighs.  Amber Run heads out on their first ever European tour this fall. Amber Run’s current sophomore album is available, here.

There are no “fickle games” to be played here as I fall head over heels for Amber Run’s latest single. A heavy rain pounds at my window and a cold wind howls through the courtyard, but I find myself gently cradled in the British band’s harmonic melting, bittersweet moving atmospheric rock. Fickle Game is gorgeous, to say the least. Though it hovers and simmers softly, the single’s folk tinged strings and gentle keys give off volume and space, melding into each other for a haunting display of boundless beauty. Fickle Game is a reflection on the music industry. It’s a fascinating point of view from the inside out. The single arrives as a new taste from Amber Run’s forthcoming sophomore album For A Moment, I Was Lost, which can be pre-ordered, here, ahead of its February 10th release date.

I totally missed the announcement earlier this month of a new Amber Run album in the works, but it’s better late than never, especially when the news arrives with a lead single like Stranger. The British band, who will be releasing their sophomore album “For a Moment, I Was Lost” on February 10th, unveil first single Stranger watery extravagant music video. Stranger is a progressive alt rock song on which Amber Run goes darker than they ever have before. It’s as if they’ve permeated their music with hints of Radiohead and Massive Attack, and it’s a gloriously cinematic recipe I find gripping intense and atmospheric riveting. You can purchase Stranger or pre-order Amber Run’s forthcoming album from iTunes.

Amber Run continued to impress (and melt) me with their recent single Just My Soul Responding. The UK band has proven themselves quite the stadium ready act with their cinematic, soaring music, and I can picture huge crowds going wild with emotion to this new one. Songs like this are also perfect for pairing with plot heavy music videos, and that’s exactly what they did with their new music video. Just My Soul Responding will be out January 19 via RCA Victor. Amber Run recently announced a UK headline tour for February.

UK indie rock band Amber Run has announced their next single, Just My Soul Responding, to be released January 19. As we’ve learned from previous tunes, Amber Run has a heart melting, cinematic sound that carries the sentimental saccharine charm of Bastille and Kodaline, plus some of the grandiose beauty of Coldplay or Racing Glaciers. Just My Soul Responding is no different. It’s an emotional power house listen. Amber Run is working on a debut album for next year, produced by Mike Crossey (Arctic Monkeys, Two Door Cinema Club, Foals, Jake Bugg). I have a feeling it’s going to be stunning. They’ll also be touring the UK in February.

Ah, Amber Run, once again I find myself reduced to a puddle on the floor thanks to your sweeping, beautiful alt rock music. The UK act has released a third song from their upcoming Pilot EP, out September 21st on RCA Victor, and Thank You, like everything we’ve heard from them to date, is a moving, sentimental gem. These guys quickly placed themselves square on my bands to watch list with earlier songs like I Found and Pilot. Their sound always reminds me of a cinematic, soaring blend of acts like Coldplay, Kodaline, and Bastille. With music as touching as theirs, I’m sure they’re on the path to great success. Let’s revisit I Found below again! Because it’s so good!

Over a month ago, new UK alt band Amber Run made our hearts melt with their gorgeous, melancholic single I Found, a cinematic, sentimental gem. They follow it up with Pilot, a more driving, explosive, and optimistic track, with a video that serves as a second part to I Found’s video. I’ll share the video for I Found again below first, then the new video for Pilot. Altogether, they make quite the interesting short film.

Taking a morning moment to share this lovely, heart string tugging ballad with you, from British band Amber Run. In actuality, I already shared I Found with you, earlier this week, via its cinematic video, but at the time, I was wishing for a SoundCloud stream, for easy streaming by lazy readers (yes, you, I know you’re out there) and some Hype Machine attention. My wish has been granted. I Found is a gorgeous song well worthy of attention, and I’d be sad if y’all miss out on the beauty. As mentioned previously, the song, and Amber Run’s sound overall, brings to mind a wonderful blend of tender Kodaline, grandiose Coldplay, and mellifluous, endearing Bastille. Amber Run is gearing up to release their new EP, Pilot, on September 21 via RCA Victor. Revisit their soaring, uplifting single Spark, from earlier this year, below.
