[:en]Even though this blog focuses on the more electronic side of music, we still love us some indie-rock (with some electronic elements). Especially when it’s by a Dutch artist who’s doing really well internationally.

“Amber Arcades is the moniker of Dutch musician Annelotte de Graaf. Having written and recorded songs in a solo setting forsome time, she flew out to New York in 2015 and teamed up with producer Ben Greenberg to record her debut album. The album sees de Graaf exploring a new set of influences, presenting floating pop melodies over mantric guitar lines and is set for release in Spring 2016.”

And that’s who I’m talking about, the blonde singer-songwriter from Utrecht who already released three tracks from that album so far, with “Fading Lines” being the most recent. Her backing band (on the album) features members of Quilt and Real Estate.

One look at her tour dates shows she’s focusing on the UK at the moment, and why shouldn’t she? We’re hoping to catch her playing this year’s The Great Escape Festival next month.

Fading Lines (album) is out 3rd of June via Heavenly Recordings/PIAS.

[:nl]Hoewel we met deze website focusen op meer electronische acts houden we nog steeds van een goede indie-rock plaat op zijn tijd (in dit geval met electronische elementen). Helemaal als het door een Nederlandse artiest is die het momenteel heel goed doet in het buitenland.

En daar heb ik het over, de blonde singer-songwriter uit Utrecht die al drie tracks van dat album naar buiten bracht, waarvan “Fading Lines” de meest recente is. Haar band (die het album inspeelde) bevat bandleden uit Quilt en Real Estate.

Een blik op haar tour data laat zien dat ze zich momenteel vooral focust op het Verenigd Koninkrijk, en waarom zou ze dat niet doen? We hopen dat we haar optreden op The Great Escape Festival volgende maand kunnen zien.
