Amber Arcades - the moniker of Dutch musician Annelotte de Graaf - have announced their debut album Fading Lines will be released June 3rd and shared the title via Loud and Quiet. They recorded the album at Strange Weather Studio in New York with producer Ben Greenberg (The Men, Beach Fossils, Destruction Unit), and the album’s songs were inspired by time, continuity, coincidence and magic. De Graaf was joined by Shane Butler and Keven Lareau of Quilt on guitar and bass, Jackson Pollis of Real Estate on drums, as well as Meg Duffy on slide guitar on “Apophenia”. She says that they listened to “a lot of Suicide, Broadcast, Stereolab, Yo La Tengo, The Gun Club.”

Of recording the album De Graaf says “In New York everything came together beautifully. The whole team, the producer and the band. It was a magical time - writing an album had been an abstract thing in my mind and recording it in New York had been a wild, surreal plan. It never really occurred to me that it would happen until I sat on the plane. I had this money in my savings account and I thought, I’m going to make an album.”
