Amber Run – Heaven
Amber Run have been kicking around for a little while now, but they're starting to make a name for themselves and it's down to atmospheric songs like this. 'Heaven' is the kind of heartbreak anthem you're likely to start hearing on American TV shows as couples implode on-screen. With big guitar licks and dramatic percussion, it's ripe with more emotion than a frustrated teenager, but it manages to be uplifting rather than self-indulgent in one irresistible balancing act. They're also starting to pick up traction thanks to some support from BBC Radio 1 and Fearne Cotton, who both tip them for big things next year following the success of The 1975 and Kodaline.
