Ambitious new songwriting...
Amber States

When Clash first stumbled across Amber States, what was immediately apparent was the sheer potential within their songwriting.

Even Lianne La Havas was impressed, and became a frequent fixture at their live shows. Debut EP 'Saratoga' is out now, and last night (May 22nd) the band returned to London for a packed out live show.

It's easy to see where the momentum is coming from. Amber States have a sharp melodic sense, a contagious energy which is paired against a probing, often quite cerebral songwriting nous.

Stripped from their new EP, 'Loops' is one of the band's most blissfully straight-ahead moments.

There are hints of the Laurel Canyon school in here, beautifully gilded songcraft with a softly melancholic edge.

Check it out now.

'Saratoga' is out now.
