Kelsey’s Prime Slices of the Week (9/9-9/13): St.Arnaud, Amber Run

St.Arnaud – “A Sweet Song” [single] – indie pop

St.Arnaud’s single “A Sweet Song” sounds unlike any other song I’ve heard in a while. The track is quite eclectic, weaving together multiple influences and sounds to create something entirely new and refreshing. “A Sweet Song” features tambourine and harmonies that seem to have walked straight out of the 1950’s and 60’s, and seamlessly combines them with modern drum beats and timeless bass lines. St.Arnaud’s creativity is evident and inspiring. They have the unique ability to effortlessly connect generations, as illustrated in this nostalgic yet contemporary tune. No matter your age, you will love this track. Check out “A Sweet Song” below!

“The Darkness Has a Voice”, Amber Run’s latest single, is full of beautiful melodies that will be stuck in your head for days to come. The track has surprises around every corner – from vocal melodies that don’t go quite as you would expect to guitar melodies that take the spotlight and give the tune a harder edge.  In “The Darkness Has a Voice”, Amber Run keeps you on your toes and nodding along the whole time. The lead vocalist does an amazing job of bringing the haunting yet alluring lyrics to life, using different tones to illustrate varied emotions. Overall, the entire band does an amazing job of bringing an energy to the tune that can’t completely be put into words.
