Hailing from London, Emily draws inspiration from her own experience to create music that is refreshing, candid and sincere. Finding fame with a song she wrote about Christopher Chope’s controversial vote in parliament regarding upskirting, she has continued to dazzle us with her honest lyricism and gentle vocals.
For her newest single The Wind, she touches on the universal feeling of grief and pain that accompanies the end of a romantic relationship – expressing this over a stripped back production, and beautifully sweet finger-plucked guitar melody. Intimate and raw, the soft acoustic instrumentation alongside Emily’s impassioned vocals perfectly reflect the heart-ache expressed in the lyrics.
Explaining the meaning behind the song, Emily speaks about how “This song exists for the person who helped me to feel real. My first true love. We listened to a lot of stories and a lot of music. I think anyone who connects to the lyrics of this song will understand why”.
A truly stunning ballad filled with indie-folk soundscapes and human emotion, this is one more example of Emily’s ability to take the hard parts of the human experience and turn it into something beautiful.
