At the beginning Orange Amber surprise: The feeling, which reminds of the German New Artrock heroes My Sleeping Karma, is suddenly interrupted by high vocals, which one has never heard before in connection with this kind of music. At the latest now one knows, the Aschaffenburger band spreads out a trip full of unexpected turns on their debut "At The Timber Line". She certainly doesn't reinvent New Artrock, but gives it new facets. This is also the case in "Kaleidoscope", which is lively and melancholic at the same time, replacing harmonica and flutes with a wall of guitars and drums. In "Leave The Doubts" the singing is no longer high, but snotty. And in "The Edge Of The Town" canon-like vocals are heard. The absolute highlight is "Gorges Of The Blue", a hymn par excellence, which masterfully masters the play of sound and silence, light and dark and intoxicating melodies. It's big. You can also expect great things from Orange Amber in the future.
