British quartet, Amber Run, shared another video “Fickle Game” from their upcoming album, For A Moment, I Was Lost. With its tendrils of melody and silky vocals, “Fickle Game” has a stretched soothing effect where the song may linger in silence even after it finishes. While it still has the gist of rock’s elan, the weightlessness of the tracks buoys you into a chillaxing atmosphere. Hit play:

“‘Fickle Game’ is about self-reflection in the music industry – how being in a band can, if you let it, stop being spontaneous and easy and instead become overly political and eventually exhausting.” shared Amber Run. For A Moment, I Was Lost will be released on February 10 and it is the follow up of their 2015 debut record 5AM. Their second album revolves around the themes of fear, anger, and moving on – which is not surprising, considering all the shitnenigans the band went through. After leaving their label, Amber Run decided to make this record on their own with their creative badassery. They also have tour dates coming up on February, so go see them live:
