‘Amber’ is the moniker of duo Stuart Thomas (Mountain Range) and Richard Meller (Will and Held). From their earliest sessions, their music has always striven to find balance. The line between clean and distorted, Cadence and dissonance, Radio friendly and Avant-Garde but most importantly, a balance of their influences.
Having spent years releasing music individually within their own niche areas of electronic music (Thomas with a blend of ‘bedroom hip-hop’ and ambient, and Meller with immediate and club heavy electronic) neither could shake the idea of creating something more in line with their other tastes.
Taking point from projects such as ‘The Cinematic Orchestra’, ‘ Darkside’ and ‘Greg Haines’, as well as a united love for both film & imagery, the pair began recording in early 2017. 2018 will see the release of their debut EP with numerous other releases in the works. Amber will look to take their live show on the road later this year’.
