Justin Swart (guitar/vocals) and Jason Hinch (drums) are The Amblers, a South African pair that give previous power duos a run for their money in the bluesy/fuzzed-out, minimalist rock department. These fellas mesh a swinging Yardbirds-meets-Raconteurs vibe (complete with large Stooges cojones) with a folk-induced mind-set that makes for a more cerebral listen whilst still rocking out completely, stripped of any bloated clutter.
The band are super stoked to announce the vinyl release of Shallow Pools (deluxe edition) thanks to Dutch boutique label Lay Bare Recordings. The album drops on the 30th September 2022 with pre-orders open from the 1st September 2022.
“As artists, we take the chaos and darkness of our lives and the lives of others and try to make sense of it. We express this in music. The deluxe edition of Shallow Pools is just this, our act of resistance. We won’t live for the gallery. This statement can be quite provoking. The album is our investigation of that question. This is our first release on vinyl, we are excited about that, so we really want to praise and thank Lay Bare Recordings for their support and how they have made this album a reality” comments Justin Swart.
Lay Bare Recordings owner Désirée Hanssen adds, “We are psyched to release the unpolished, dirty vintage and high energetic tunes from The Amblers. Shallow Pools delivers fuzzy, filthy and fleshed out dirty blues garage rock.”
