THE YACHT CLUB Stream Gorgeous New Single ‘In Amber’

5th December 2018

London math/emo/shoegaze quartet The Yacht Club are pleased to share another new single from their recently announced debut albumThe Last Words That You Said To Me Have Kept Me Here And Safe, which is set for release on 25th January 2019 via Beth Shalom Records.

‘In Amber’ is the latest track to be taken from the record, a golden autumnal reflection on growing older and moving on, whilst still holding onto the formative memories of youth. The single will be released on all good digital service providers on 7th December 2018.

With guitarist Jack Holland taking the helm on lyric writing and vocal duties for this track—one of a clutch of songs on the record penned that he penned—he explains of the inspiration behind the single: “This particular song is about some old friends who, in hindsight, often made me feel quite bad about myself just through being dismissive and belittling.

“These were people I shared my formative years with and ‘In Amber’ is about the disconnect between missing how those experiences made me feel, but not missing all of the people I shared them with.

“The end of the last chorus is a shout out to a very old friend of mine. We had left a house party in the small hours and were talking about ‘doing a notebook’ and laying in the road (like Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams do in The Notebook), so we did. It’s one of my fondest memories but I absolutely do not recommend doing it.”

Musically the single takes inspiration from Phoebe Bridgers, and one of the lyrics on the track—”the rays highlight the dents you left in me”—is a loose reference to ‘Always Be’ by friend of the band Natalie Evans.

“That song resonates in the same place for me,” explains Holland, “remembering something fondly but recognising that there’s negativity attached to the memory of a person.”

The Yacht Club will play a special album launch show planned for 26th January 2019 at The Sebright Arms in London, with further live dates TBA.
