Announce March UK tour with Palehound

Listen to ‘Right Now

Debut album due Spring 2016

“de Graaf’s gorgeous melodies float by in a dream-like state, before heavenly harmonies take hold and strike a glorious melancholic chord.” – The Line of Best Fit

“what a damn fine thing it is – as suitable for sleety January days as it is balmy festival mornings.” –Noisey

“On one level you’ll find those beautiful, sweet, innocent vocals, but on the other sits granulated synth noise that pirouettes from speaker to speaker.” – Clash

“Imagine what Yo La Tengo might come up with if they tried to reframe Republica’s “Ready To Go” as one of their trademark melancholy drifts, or think of some incredible lost Stereolab B-side as remembered from the back of your subconscious. ” – Stereogum

“Amber Arcades will pull you under her spell” – Consequence of Sound
