New Music: Amber Jay – Equal

I’ve been a big fan of Liverpudlian bedroom pop artist Amber Jay since I first discovered her music at the beginning of this year, so I’m pleased to see she’s back with a new track. It’s called Equal.

By Graeme Smith

Equal is a pop track with something to say. Speaking as a woman, Amber vents their collective frustration of being treated as second-class citizens. The message is eloquently and powerfully put, delivered against a backdrop of fuzzy synth and bouncing beats. Amber’s vocal, as always, is utterly compelling too.

I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again: Amber is one of the hottest prospects on the UK pop scene right now. She’s criminally overlooked, but the big press outfits are starting to take notice. It’s only a matter of time before she get the success she deserves.
