Amber Run are British indie three-piece Joe Keogh (Vocal/Guitar), Tomas Sperring (Bass) and Henry Wyeth (Keyboardist), who deliver cinematic pop with a moody and introspective tone.
Formed in 2012, the band met at the University of Nottingham and within their first year together self-released their debut 'Noah' EP, performing at Reading & Leeds Festival in August 2013. Their first album ‘5AM’, produced by Mike Crossey (Arctic Monkeys, The 1975, Foals, Two Door Cinema Club), broke the UK top 40 in 2015.
The band returned in 2017 with unrivalled passion and a sound to match in their second album ‘For A Moment, I Was Lost’; selling out their headline UK and European tours. Released to wide-spread critical acclaim, their sophomore record is a raw, deeply introspective album with rich electronic textures, moments of expansive beauty and full-blooded raw emotion.
Good music seems instantaneous: a decisive rush of expression and dopamine. Hamilton, Ontario's Ellevator captures that direct hit of immediacy, with a closer listen revealing the meticulous design of their muscular pop songs. Frontwoman Nabi Sue Bersche delivers raw lyricism with quiet power. Her nimble melodies anchor the electric hooks and cinematic timbres Ellevator has refined on countless stages. Their striking debut EP -- recorded in Hamilton with Michael Keire (Arkells, The Dirty Nil, Wildlife) -- was released in the Spring of 2018 by Arts & Crafts. Brick by brick, Ellevator has built a reputation as a band to watch.
