'‘Girl in Amber’ is a song wrapped around a mystery. It is a song that formed itself as if from a dream and it seems to possess a special, almost mystical, power.
Back in 2014, I was sitting at Warren’s kitchen table after a day of making music in his little studio at the back of his house in Paris. On the table was a paperweight with a spider trapped inside, and the title ‘Girl in Amber’ slipped into my mind. From Red Hand File Issue #85
The phrase “Don’t touch me” is repeated at the very end of the song, ‘Girl in Amber.’ It seems to speak into our time.' Nick Cave
