Never Too Far From A Dark Thought is the futuristic EP of your dreams
BY SOPHIE GRIFFITHS
After the release of her sci-fi single Pencilled Brims earlier on this year, we’ve had our ears peeled waiting for the debut EP from Amber Jay. The wait is over! Today, the Liverpool based bedroom-pop artist releases her first collection of music, Never Too Far From A Dark Thought.
Amber digs deep by blending genres from the likes of electronica to alt-pop sounds to create her own atmospheric cinematic musical universe.
Commenting on the release, Amber said: “The EP really just forced itself into the world. I didn’t plan to make it but after recording Stay The Same it all made so much sense that this body of work needed to be made. I had a handful of songs full of heart and atmosphere, that I knew I wanted to give out one day but it really felt like the universe took me and put me in all the right places to make them into the form they are today.”
“The EP has such an energy and is packed with my personality and vulnerability which is scary and exciting all at the same time. This collection of tracks has compacted into what I feel is a solid foundation that I want to grow and build upon as I go forward.”
Staring her musical journey at just age 13, she’s been writing consistently and pulling inspiration from the likes of Marika Hackman and Girl In Red ever since. Amber Jay has solidified herself as a progressive queer pop artist to watch in 2021 with this gripping EP, and we can’t to see what the rest of the year holds for her.
