Amber Arcades shares 'Can't Say That We Tried' - watch here

Amber Arcades, the moniker of Dutch-born musician Annelotte De Graaf, today shares a video for her current single, "Can't Say That We Tried", taken from the upcoming 'Cannonball' EP, out on June 2nd 2017 via Heavenly Recordings. The video was directed by Don Josephus Raphael Eblahan and is available to watch below.

Annelotte said of the video: "sometimes when I'm bored I just randomly click when I get a notification that someone likes my page. Like a kind of market research I tell myself cos I can't accept that maybe I'm just a creepy internet stalker yet. This one day I clicked and I came on the Facebook profile of this guy Don and he had a link to his Vimeo page and since I was really bored I clicked further on that and then I saw he made some pretty amazing stuff. I especially liked this video he had made of an aquarium with dreamy fish. The week after my label guy told me it would be good to have a video for this song and I just thought about this fishy video. Like how the fish just float around, not knowing that there is this whole world outside of this aquarium, it's beautiful but also kind of sad, which is how I feel about this song. So I asked Don if he'd be into making an edit of his material to fit the song and shot some extra footage of me singing the tune to mix up with it. Like Sinead O'Connor vids kinda. I love how it all turned out and I love how the whole thing was kind of born out of a coincidence, like me clicking that notification that time. The magic of this internet world."

The director said the following: "One morning I woke up to an email from a name that wasn't familiar to me. Instead of my usual habit of not batting an eye at the emails that pile up each day, I read the message and saw the subject saying "Amber Arcades" and then I just flipped out! I felt honored because I adore her music, and it's so unlikely that a musician that I place in high regard would send me a message asking me to make a music video for her. It was quite an honor and it's very cool to see how social media can connect artists globally. Annelotte is very fun to talk to as well! Such a cool and down to earth person."
