Amber Arcades announce debut album and share new video

Amber Arcades, aka Dutch musician Annelotte de Graaf, has announced her debut album Fading Lines, to be released on 3rd June 2016 via Heavenly Recordings.

de Graaf is also sharing a new video to her album's lead single, 'Right Now', here described by directors Jeroen van der Poel and Anna de Rijk:

‘When we first got to listen to Amber Arcades’ ‘Right Now’ we instantly got the emerging feeling of a dream state; a surrealistic feeling which lacks any straightforward narrative. The cool thing about working with children at this young age (5 and 7) is that they will sabotage any trial to a narrative approach. Their fantasy and energy was a perfect match with our feelings towards the track’.

We can't wait for this album, which features: Shane Butler and Keven Lareau of Quilt on guitar and bass, Jackson Pollis of Real Estate on drums, plus Meg Duffy on slide guitar on the eerie, clip-clopping ‘Apophenia’.
