Amber Run ‘I Found’ Song of the Day 15th Sept 2014

Nottingham four-piece Amber Run are a band with a lot of feels. This eery easy listener is drip fed with a solid beat and light synth. A nice tune.

Having deliberately chosen a name with no obvious connotations, Amber Run are determined to stand aside from the herd. “I’d rather be timeless than cool,” says Joe. “We’re not writing edgy music that sounds like 2014 – it’s music for the whole decade, not just for now. We want people to be coming back to our music in 20 years.”

Amber Run just got the green light to start sweeping up music lovers for all the ages. From tiny sparks…

British DJ and electronic producer Jon Hopkins is mad for the re-working these days. Following the re-work of his Immunity track ‘Breathe This Air’, where he added Purity Ring, he’s thrown Lulu James into another track ‘We Disappear’.

*Pop Alert* Röyksopp & Robyn ‘Do It Again’

We love a bit of Robyn here on serenityb. The song featured on Annie Mac’s BBBC Radio show just two days ago, and has blown up. Looks like the accidental pop song will be an intentional hit.
