EP from Amber Spyglass out now

Amber Spyglass – New EP, “Breathing in Essence”

AMBER SPYGLASS (Boston MA) released their 3rd cd Breathing in Essence on their own Decorative Records on 9/17/2012.

Amber Spyglass is the collaboration of Kelly Spyglass (vox, gtrs) and John DeGregorio (gtrs, programming). Starting in the early 2000’s as a dark alternative band w/ gothic, ethereal & dreampop leanings, they currently perform as a quartet with violin & cello featuring forays into AAA, dark folk and jazz. The songwriting and guitar playing of Kelly Spyglass currently anchors their latest efforts but at every stage their sound has been marked with progressive elements, world music flourishes & samples as well as alternate guitar tunings.

Breathing in Essence begins with a more classic, gothic, big tribal sound, conjuring the likes of Faith and the Muse or Siouxsie & the Banshees. After a few songs though, more heartfelt, acoustic-based arrangements are revealed.
