British indie-rock trio Amber Run — consisting of Joe Keogh (Vocal/Guitar), Tomas Sperring (Bass), and Henry Wyeth (Keyboard) — have just released their new song called “Carousel.”
Amber Run, formed in 2012, have made a career so far by being known for their cinematic rock and moody introspective tones and lyrics. That’s no different on “Carousel” as the new song can be characterized as driven by their distorted electric guitar, a quiet-loud back and forth between the verses and pounding chorus.
“We recorded ‘Carousel’ in London with our longtime collaborator Ben Allen,” Amber Run explained to Billboard. “Our last few releases have felt self-conscious at times, so we wanted to record and release something at the periphery of what we do.”
Amber Run is set to kick off their first North American tour with sold out shows in New York City (December 8 – Music Hall of Williamsburg) and Toronto (December 11 –Velvet Underground). Speaking on their upcoming tour, the band shares “It’s a privilege to say that we can sell out shows in cities we’ve never been in and we will make sure they are shows that won’t be forgotten!”
Amber Run have built an impressive following, as they currently average 1.5 million monthly listeners on Spotify, while amassing over 130 million streams. Outside of streaming numbers, the band has had their music placed in numerous television shows; Teen Wolf, Pretty Little Liars, Reign, Outlanders, and Finding Carter.
