Amber Run Concorde 2, Brighton October 2017 Words & Photos: Chloe Hashemi It’s always a treat when you get to see not one but two great bands grace the same stage in a single evening. That being said, you can imagine my delight when I found out I would be seeing both Amber Run and … Continue reading

Interview Exclusive: Amber Run

Amber Run Words: Leander Hobbs The haunting voice of Joe Keogh is somewhat subdued as we exchange pleasantries on an uncommonly warm day at the beginning of August 2017. I am here to discuss Amber Run’s forthcoming digital EP release and UK tour, including an appearance at Hanger 34, Liverpool on 8 October 2017. What … Continue reading

Live Review: Amber Run – Manchester

Amber Run Academy 2, Manchester, 23rd February 2017 Words & Photos: Elena Katrina I’ve been looking forward to this tour since the day it was announced and then once the support acts were added it was my most highly anticipated show so far for 2017. Three of our favourite bands all on one line up, … Continue reading

Album Review: Amber Run – For A Moment, I Was Lost

For  A Moment, I Was Lost Released February 10th 2017 Words: Elena Katrina The impending doom some bands must feel when they begin working on their notoriously “difficult second album”. You have had a lifetime’s worth of experiences and practise to hone yourselves to the best of what you want to be for your debut … Continue reading

Just Watch: Amber Run – Fickle Game

Amber Run Words: Elena Katrina Fickle Game sees a slight return to a more “classic session” Amber Run sound, in terms of a stripped back sound, piano and a real focus on Joe’s vocals and the stunning harmonies. The lyrics here though remain on the darker side as with their most recent tracks. The fragility … Continue reading

Just Watch: Amber Run – No Answers

Amber Run Words: Elena Katrina Following on from their last single, Stranger, Amber Run give yet another little hint toward what you can expect from their forthcoming second album. While there was an eerie darkness, No Answers replaces it with a full-bodied and bile riddled attack. The production of the vocal only adds to the … Continue reading

Just Listen: Amber Run – Stranger

Amber Run Words: Elena Katrina After the short, stark hint at a return with Haze, back in April, Amber Run return once more with new track Stranger. There’s still an eerie starkness to it, a gritty melancholy but more musicality. Joe’s haunting, wailing notes are beautifully tinged with pain and the bass lines offer a … Continue reading

Festival Review: Bushstock – London

Bushstock 18th June 2016, London Words: Elena Katrina Photos: Daisy Smart Bushstock has been one of my favourite festivals of the past four or so years and last year I let someone else take my place to hit up the Communion Music presented festival in South West London’s Shepherds Bush to review for Popped. I … Continue reading

Just Watch: Amber Run – Haze

Amber Run After a period of relative quietness, in terms of new releases, Amber Run have returned with something which takes a total departure from their usual sound. Haze still compounds their stunning vocals to create a feeling which is so deep that I’m not sure if it’s the words, the sentiment or the emotion … Continue reading

Festival Review: X&Y Festival 2015

X&Y Arts Club, Liverpool, 11th July 2015 Words: Elena Katrina Photos: Gaz Jones I managed to miss last year’s gargantuan one day indie-pop bliss that is X&Y festival, so with a line up that featured so many of our fave new bands of the last 18 months we just had to get along to this … Continue reading

Album Review: Amber Run – 5AM

5AM Released April 20th 2015 I can’t believe that it has arrived at this time already. Not 5AM, but that Amber Run are releasing their debut album. It feels like it was only the other month that I was stood in a very muddy field watching them play, what was at the time, their 6th … Continue reading
