Amber Run are a band I heard of a couple years back, and liked well enough, but haven’t really kept up with since then. While surfing Youtube, they came up in the recommended videos, and so, hey, here we go!
This is one of their early songs from when I first heard of them. (There is a 2015 version, but the video has audio that cuts over the song, which I kinda dislike, so that’s why I’m posting the older video.) It’s a great ballad, with a great singalong chorus (like… fine, it’s not anthemic or upbeat, but it’s still good to hum along to.) It’s a pleasant track, somewhat bitter, but soothing too.

I’m pretty tired, so I’m gonna keep this short. This is a pretty interesting track; I’m not sure it’s really one of my favourites in any capacity, but it’s nice to listen to, and kinda weird, which I like. I was just looking up Bloc Party as someone I’d vaguely heard of a long time in the past because their name popped up related to something else.
