Amber Arcades is the moniker of Dutch musician Annelotte de Graaf. Over the last few years she’s traded in the kind of worn-in beauty that makes for very the best heart-breaking pop: Drowsy, yearning lovelorn songs over sparse instrumentation. But in 2015, after flying out to New York and teaming up with producer Ben Greenberg, a new sound emerged. The result is brooding vocals laid over a bed of pulsating motorik rhythms and floating pop melodies. It’s coloured in pop and it’s brilliant.
Amber Arcades tour dates listed on Ents24.com since Feb 2016.
