Discovery: Amber Jay

Although this is our first time covering Amber Jay, she’s already been making a lot of noise on the UK underground scene. Hailing from Liverpool, her mission is to reinvent bedroom pop and she’s succeeding. Her new track Stay The Same is characterised by unexpected electronic beats and shrewd lyrics.

By Graeme Smith

Stay The Same is full of wishful thinking. An earworm chorus demands that the wind forever blows in the same direction and the tide stays where it is, perfectly mirroring that feeling we all get when we fear change.

The instrumentals are an antithesis to this feeling though, forever evolving and heading in unexpected directions. It’s beautifully and intelligently created and it’s easy to see why Amber is earning such attention. She’s one to watch.
