Amber Oak has finally managed to release their debut album; “Illt”. Harden by difficulties, unpleasantness and defection, our quintet has now returned as a quartet, since a former member’s departure to the east, last seen in the mountains of Slovakia.
The album is a manic depressive mix of overdriven pop, spring reverb and with the echoes of the sixties lingering. An ambiguous story of a lost youth and a crave to get away. Away from constant winter, small town mentality and hockey. This ten strong song album proves once and for all that Amber Oak is definitely a band to keep close to your heart and with an open track like “Hide In My Car” they sure melted my.
