Video: Amber Run - Stranger

“Sometime You Don’t Get What You Need. But Sometimes Love Comes Easily.”

After a short return back in April with the emotionally-vocoded Haze, Nottingham’s Amber Run introduce another bold new track with Stranger. Reflecting the Rorschach-style cover of their forthcoming album, inky monochromatic visuals depict a band floating in much darker and mysterious musical waters. Joe Keogh’s haunting vocal wails through the crashing waves of progressive alt-rock as the powerfully emotive production strays from previously perfect indie-pop into something much grittier.

“If ‘Stranger’ is about suffering for your art then the video felt like it had to be a physical representation of that suffering, hence the submersion in water. Being underwater – you can’t breathe, you can’t see, movement is lethargic. Only when you’re submerged for too long do you realise how coming up for air is a blessing. Only that can make you understand how something as innocuous as breathing can feel so good.”

Stranger is taken from the forthcoming sophomore album ‘For A Moment, I Was Lost’, due February. 10th. Pre-order now and grab tickets to their upcoming UK tour.
