The long-awaited followup to 2013’s debut ‘opal’, this album unveils in violet’s evolution through three years of development. ‘amber’ is a deeply personal record. Drawing inspiration from a strange mix of mythology and self-reflection these ten songs are darker, more electronically-driven and focused than before, with recurrent musical and lyrical themes threading throughout the 60-minute journey. Sonic manipulation and distortion damage then redefine familiar sounds, warping perception into something more surreal. Best played in a single sitting, in darkness, it’s not a journey for the faint of heart and with repeated listening & immersion drawing out new details to discover in every sitting.
All songs written, recorded, mixed and produced by Jake Murray, except where noted.
Mastered by Arthur Young at Shaken Oak Studios.
Assistant engineers: Matias Duarte, Adrian Furdui, Niclas Jeppsson, Timor Shait.
