Emily – producer, musician,
renaissance woman and the guiding light behind Emily In Love
presents her new release “Let’s Pretend
Compared the her first EP on Corpid Extra, the sound is a lot more
defined and confident now, a lot less electronic, as Emily spent a lot
of time recording instruments live, occasionally bringing in other
musicians like her partners Pia and Ricardo.
The EP opens with "Sow The Seeds", a very meditative reflection on a relationship and a real showcase for Pia’s unique vocal style, which is informal and intimate and draws you in straight away. In Track two, "Jellybean", the more electronic side of Emily In Love shines through this, especially in the percussion sounds. "Half A Chance" exemplifies what was meant about Emily In Love sounding confident – it has a swagger that really gives it an edge - and the saxophone is an inspired touch that sits really well in the mix. "Everything's Ok" is a sad song about missing someone who’s living in another state, and all you’ve got is a phone call to make things better. Saving the best til last – "Here With You" is a real tour de force, not only for what Emily has done with the vocals, but also Ricardo’s guitar. The boy plays a blinder!
