articles (links will open in a new browser tab):
Sound (September 2011) ... "City-based post-punk outfit The Amber Herd - and when we say
"post punk", we mean like the masterclass of 1984 perfected so vehemently back in the day -
released their excellent This Town EP earlier this summer."
Static Magazin - Germany (Reviewing This Town EP - September
2011) ... "Sometimes
things go different, that would be the first thing to say, while
listening to The Amber Herd from Nottingham (UK). Neil Beards
(guitar and vocals) and Paul Wentworth (bass and vocals) share
the singing parts and get assisted by Mark Lasbury (drums),
Ollie Powditch (keyboards) and Rob Flitzmaurice (bass)."
Derbyshire Times (June 2011) .... "IT’S an irony of the internet age that when the potential for
choice is nearly limitless, everything suddenly seems to sound the same. But that’s not a problem facing
Chesterfield/Notts band the Amber Herd. Fresh from their appearance at the Bearded Theory Festival,
the band have just released five-track EP This Town."
Nottingham Live (May 2011) ... "The Amber Herd are one of the unsung heroes of the local
Nottingham live music scene, not given the attention they
deserve they continue to offer up their unique alternative music
and growing their fan base. Their latest offering is the five
track EP This Town and with its release is evidence of
a band is not content to simply sit on its laurels, the EP shows
a band intent on pushing themselves more and more and in doing
so offers up their best work to date."
