Traveling from Brooklyn to Detroit, and from Nashville to Baltimore, Arcades will introduce American audiences to her lightly psychedelic guitar pop with baroque and krautrock influences. Her album "Fading Lines," which was released via Heavenly in June, was made in Brooklyn with The Green Men producer Ben Greenberg.
Amber Arcades, real naam Annelotte de Graaf, first started writing songs in 2010 while temporarily living in Philadelphia. Back in the Netherlands she put out a first EP in 2012 containing soft-voiced, melancholic folk ballads. Wanting to develop her sound and mature from the safe bedroom folk environment, she got in touch with producer Ben Greenberg to produce a collection of songs she had written over the years. In May 2015, de Graaf flew out to New York to record the songs in the Strange Weather recording studio in Brooklyn, backed by a band consisting of members of Real Estate, Quilt and Kevin Morby. The result is a record that is as dreamy and esoteric as it is gripping, presenting slightly off, floating pop melodies over a mixture of kraut-inspired drums, cutting guitars and fuzzed-out organs.
Nada Surf founders Matthew Caws (vocals, guitar) and Daniel Lorca (bass) were longtime school friends, having studied together at the Lycée Français de New York in Upper Manhattan. In 2014, the group released "B-Sides," a digital collection of rare and unreleased material, and followed with a live album, Live at the Neptune Theater. Returning in 2016, the band released their eighth studio album, "You Know Who You Are."
