Bored at My Grandmas House Shares Haunting New Track “Inhibitions”

A haunting track that surfs indie pop, shoegaze, and lo-fi dream pop

Following on from the huge success of her critically acclaimed debut EP Sometimes I Forget You’re Human Too, the Leeds-based project of Amber Strawbridge, Bored at My Grandmas House, is back with a new single “Inhibitions.” Mostly written and recorded at home, Amber linked up with Alex Greaves at The Nave (Bdrmm, Yard Act, Working Mens Club) to add the finishing touches. The outcome – a compelling, haunting track that surfs classic indie pop, shoegaze and lo-fi dream pop, voicing frustrations of introspection and claiming inhibitions to be a “secret killer.”

“‘Inhibitions’ is a track that’s a homage to all the over-thinkers in the world” Bored at My Grandmas House says of the track. “I wrote it from a place of reflection and frustration. It’s about feeling anxious day to day and watching my own inhibitions get in the way of everyday life and the things I want to achieve. It’s a feeling that was new to me and something that I felt I had no control over, written to reflect a time when I didn’t feel like my authentic self.

Originally from Cumbria, the project was born in 2017 in her bedroom as Amber started recording onto her phone using Garageband until she had saved enough money to upgrade her humble set up. After a couple of years of self-taught production and recording, Amber signed to Clue Records and released her debut EP which sold out two pressings before she had even played her first show.

With support from BBC Radio 1, BBC 6 Music, DIY, Clash, Dork and performances at Radio 1’s Big Weekend, Glastonbury and Deer Shed, Bored at My Grandmas House is on the verge of breaking through to the mainstream, with songs like “Inhibitions” sitting in her pocket, ready to be released.
