Dear Amber, an alternative rock band based in Copenhagen, have dropped the second single from their forthcoming EP.
The first taste of the EP came from their previous single, ‘Rear-end Collision’, which received widespread airplay and has accumulated thousands of streams on Spotify. The track showcased the band’s 1990s influences and exhibited echoes of Nirvana and Green Day.
Their new track, ‘The End of Us’, continues the trend set by its predecessor and features soaring choruses, melodic guitar parts and heavy, driven percussion. The overall sound is tightly produced and gives the track’s distorted instrumentation a feeling of togetherness.
In terms of influence, there are elements of both The Goo Goo Dolls and Smashing Pumpkins on the record; the latter of which the band themselves have referenced as a key influence.
The group, which formed back in 2019, consists of Ronni Jørgensen and Rasmus Schou on vocals and guitar; Kenneth Juul Larsen on bass; and Jan Ettrup-Mikkelsen on drums. Interestingly, all the members have over 20 years experience in creating, producing, and performing music, perhaps suggesting where their influences were first established.
As is the case for their latest release, the group’s core sound also revolves around a classic 1990s makeup and, in addition to The Smashing Pumpkins, the band reference the likes of Placebo and Kent as major influences on their sound.
The group will continue to release each track off of their debut EP, titled ‘Sparks Equal Fall’, as stand-alone singles, before they drop the fully formed record on August 13th.
'The End Of Us' is out now on all major streaming platforms.
