In 2013 singer/songwriter Annelotte de Graaf wanted to form a new group: Amber Arcades. For the EP she wanted to work with a different group than for the live sets. She ended up with me (bass), Otto de Jong (drums), Marlon Penninkhof (guitar/vocals) and Thierry Castel (keys) on the recordings. Together with producer Brian Esselbrugge we recorded the first Amber Arcades EP in different studios.
The song Benjamin (which was also recorded at these sessions) ended up on the Knalland album.
