Emmy The Great readies EP, tours (2015)

Emmy The Great returns with her four track EP S, released on Bella Union on January 27.
Where previous recordings have been introspective, reflecting the deepest concerns and confines of Emmy’s own mind, S EP looks outwards. Written in cities including Salt Lake City, Tokyo, Hong Kong, LA, New York and London during an itinerant period in Emmy’s life, the songs track the resulting personal changes and invite us to explore the rapidly advancing world around us.
An impressive cohort of talent signed up to assist Emmy’s latest creation.  Wild Beasts’ Tom Fleming joins Emmy for lead single “Swimming Pool”, a haunting siren-song that submerges us in an affluent montage, replete with rippling keys and dream laden bass.

Recording was split between LA, with Ludwig Goransson (Haim, Childish Gambino), and London, with Dave McCracken (Oh Land, Beyonce). MIA’s MD Neil Comber mixed the final results.
A singer-songwriter gifted with a rare idiosyncratic charm, Emmy The Great released debut album First Love to critical acclaim in 2009 with follow up Virtue (2011) winning equally impressive plaudits. Songs that walk the line between heartbreaking fragility and bold, wit-laden observations on the human condition continue to enthrall all who hear them.  Her keen observational eye has no doubt contributed to her recent success as a writer, with regular contributions to Vice and The Guardian.
