Amber Arcades + Guests

June 8, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

After an amazing performance back in January 2017, we are pleased to announce the excellent AMBER ARCADES will be returning to Bedford Esquires on Friday the 8th June 2018.

Responsible for one of the best debut albums of recent years ‘Fading Lines’, and signed to our favourite independent label, Heavenly Recordings, Amber Arcades is the moniker of dutch born musician Annelotte de Graaf.

Much loved by BBC 6Music, Amber Arcades music is a shimmering mix of indie pop, krautrock and shoegaze. They’ve been compared to such luminaries as Beach House, Stereolab and The Cocteau Twins.

Praise for ‘Fading Lines’…

‘A remarkable record that simply demands your attention’ – Drowned in Sound 10/10.

‘Blissful, elegant records like this do not come about by chance’.
The Skinny 5/5

‘There’s a winning mix of mist and muscle on this debut’
Uncut 8/10

Album of the Year – Rough Trade / Piccadilly Records / Resident Records.

In June 2017, Amber Arcades released the Cannonball EP, featuring the brilliant ‘It Changes’ (which was actually debuted at Esquires, fact fans) and a re-working of the classic Nick Drake song ‘Which Will’

Amber Arcades are returning to the UK in 2018 to play a handful of high profile festivals dates including Green Man, Bluedot, Festival No.6 and Indietracks. We are extremely excited to welcome them back to Esquires.

Tickets are £8.50 in advance, available from http://www.seetickets.com / http://www.wegotickets.com and shortly from Esquires Bar / Slide Record Store / Mario’s Hair Design (Kempston).

Support to be announced.
