The Amber Herd

The amber herd have been gracing stages for 5 years now, they started out as a obscure pink floyd covers project that within a year had ditched the floyd and started down their own path.

Their music is a very varied in style and can be easily transposed into an acoustic setting as their usual full force pedal driven swirling guitar/keys maelstrom!

The band have self released two singles and one e.p.

".... Both blissfully melancholic indie and uplifting stripped-back folk and comes to a sprawling, open-mouthed finish with an almost Velvet Underground-esque wall of sound, acoustics flitting between prog keyboard stabs and all buried under Neil Beards' darkly overdriven Mary Chain guitar. Nottingham's best kept secret?" thiscitymagazine
