Amber Spyglass
Breathing in Essence
Decorative Records

Amber Spyglass return with a new EP after a lengthy absence. Fortunately their dark wave sound is still compelling and the songs good.

"Harmonic Tide" is a dreamy yet kinetic song with a great vocal by Kelly Godsall. "On the Wire" is a lengthy and mournful song that harkens back to the prime Siouxsie and the Banshees. The sound is all their own and it works well. The closing "Like Lost Lovers" is a ballad that's expertly played and sung. The addition of cello and violin adds to the sound beautifully. It's a lovely EP and I hope they record more soon.
