Embrace

Last night I went to an Embrace gig and they were absolutely amazing. I think they are playing some shows in America soon and I'd highly recommend them to anyone who was thinking of going.

I don't think their latest album "Out of Nothing" has been released in America yet (at least that's what it says on their website) but I would recommend some of their older stuff like "Drawn from Memory" and "The Good Will Out"

I checked the band index but I could only see threads about the Gravity single. Any other fans here?

I love them too!

I ended up ordering the import cd because heck if I'm gonna wait for the US to get hip to them and release the cd! (Which was supposed to be released in May, I believe but has been pushed back... blah)

I also saw that they were opening for Snow Patrol, which I'm seeing in May... which Embrace are not opening for I was severely disappointed.


Would anyone be willing to AIM/YSI (or something) me some other songs?

I posted another interferencer here some copies of Embrace tunes/ albums (one had their cover of D12's - How Come ). I could do the same for you if you want. Drop me an e-mail if you want, I think you can do it through here but I don't like posting it incase I get lots of junk mail so here is an alternate one I use: lara_mullen@yahoo.co.uk

The more I've heard from the them... the more impressed I've become.


I totally need to move out of the US solely to indulge my music needs


Thanks very much, Lara... you've got mail

I think yuo'll really like their older stuff. Most of my friends think they are a mellow-coldplay type band. I am really surprised Embrace aren't more popular. I think they have heaps more talent than the coldplay blokes

I wanted to thank you again, Lara... music fans rock, especially ones willing to send music across the "pond"

Once I get the cds, I would be happy to copy them for any US fans

No sweat, I'm currently copying them now. I'll send you the b-sides I have too.

THEY'VE ARRIVED!


The cds finally arrived today *growls at US postal service*


I listened to about half of "The Good Will Out" on the way home tonight and I can't wait to listen to more!


Thanks again, Lara! You rock my socks

I love embrace! My first taste of them was back in October. My friends picked me up from the airport in Boston. I had just come in off a flight from Ireland, and was going through my usual IRL - Boston tired feeling, and my friends were like you gotta here this new band! So thats the way I got to ride home that day. Very cool memory.

i've heard some of the songs for album #5 and they are really, really good. they are barely known outside the uk it seems which is kind of sad, i think they're much better than the snow patrol/ coldplay groups people like so much here

you're welcome hippy. i'm glad they arrived. i think you'll like the d12 cover and the drawn from memory tunes :hyper

you've already heard songs from the next album?

"Out of Nothing" hasn't even been officially released in the US yet

I do like the D12 cover! In fact, I like everything I've heard so far... I've had a chance to listen to everything but about half of "If You've Never Been"...

I'm frequently disappointed by the American music scene and the complete lack of availability of music outside of the top 40 charts. It seems that nothing exists in the US unless it's on those damn charts.

Which is why I love the internet and internet radio

What do they sound like? Someone above said they were somewhat similar to Coldplay...is that a correct correlation? I mean, I love Coldplay Also, are they anything like Elbow, 'cause I downloaded some stuff from those guys off iTunes due to a few Interferencer's admiration of the band...but they really weren't my "style" so to speak. Yep.

I tend to talk much more than is needed. In conclusion, is there a US release date for their albums and do they have a website I could sample a few tracks from? I gotta admit, this thread has sparked my interest...

Their last album had a song written by Chris Martin called Gravity which is really good and a lot of the tracks on Out of Nothing (which was released here last year but is released in America in June I think) are quite mellow and I could see the resemblance with bands like Coldplay. I don't really see a huge resemblance but there is a big crossover here between Embrace/ Coldplay fans.

"The good will out" and "Drawn from memory" are two of their old albums which are really, really worth checking out. I sent Fah & Hippy all their old stuff and their unreleased US album and they seem to like them.

Their website is www.embrace.co.uk but I don't know if they have samples of their old songs. I only lurk in the messageboards and news forum. If you like I can send you some songs I have online. I think I have some links from when I sent some to my friend last week.

Hippy, I heard 2 new songs when they played their gig in Belfast last month. They are really energetic. I can never find recordings of their shows though.
