Amber Arcades released ‘Fading Lines’ (listen), opening for Nada Surf’s fall tour
Dutch singer songwriter Amber Arcades released her debut album, Fading Lines, earlier this month via Heavenly. As mentioned, she made it in Brooklyn with producer Ben Greenberg of The Men, and enlisted the help of Shane Butler and Keven Lareau of Quilt, and Real Estate drummer Jackson Pollis. The result is lightly psychedelic guitar pop with baroque and krautrock flourishes that falls somewhere between Broadcast and Alvvays. If you haven't checked it out you can stream it via Spotify, and check out the video for "Fading Lines," below.
Amber will be in North America this fall as she's just been added as opener for most of Nada Surf's tour. Her dates with them include the Brooklyn show at Music Hall of Williamsburg on September 17 (she is not, however, opening the 9/18 Bowery Ballroom show). Tickets for MHOW are still available.
