AMBER ARCADES SHARES SHORT FILM HINTING AT SECOND ALBUM + DEBUTS BRAND NEW TRACK “GOODNIGHT EUROPE” OUT NOW ON HEAVENLY RECORDINGS
Following the worldwide success of her debut album Fading Lines and consequent Cannoball EP, today Dutch musician Amber Arcades is pleased to share a compelling, artfully-shot short film hinting at a forthcoming second album. Watch it below or HERE. The video is the first installation in a series of three and debuts brand new track “Goodnight Europe” within. Listen to it on Spotify HERE.
Director Elliott Arndt says of the film:
“A lot of the themes Annelotte wrote about for her record struck very close to home. What I found especially poignant in her lyrics is how it’s mostly through a study of herself and a nonchalant look outside her window that Annelotte makes us get a sense of the political turmoil that’s affecting her. In that respect, I was interested in trying to represent this sense of “banality” in a young adult couple in 2018, who are not only the fruit of a vibrant European Union, but also perhaps the ones most directly affected by its dismantling. I wanted to depict a static, homesick, glitchy romance. And here it is, trying all it can to grow against, amongst and beyond the constricting geographical barriers surrounding it.”
Annelotte de Graaf (Amber Arcades) says of the track :
“I guess about half of it is me actually being worried about the current state of the Union. The other half is me kind of messing around with, and making fun of, this archetype of the tiresome existentialist academic in me.”
Amber Arcades will perform live in the UK and Europe throughout this summer. Additional news is forthcoming.
