Emmy The Great #5 - Swimming Pool

Facebook

It's been three years since the release of Virtue, which certainly makes news from Emmy The Great long over-due. Emma-Lee Moss' warming, cotton-candy voice returns to my ears with "Swimming Pool". Introducing us to a sound as intimate and engaging as ever but progressive and new too, with Emmy leaving behind her acoustic roots for layers of soft, languid electronic beauty.

Waves of bubbling synths and the thinnest murmurs of guitar create a wintry atmosphere in which Emmy's vocal, soon joined by Tom from Wild Beasts' equally intrigues and enchants. Spacious and gorgeous, it's a compelling return ahead of a four track EP due early next year. 

The EP is called S and is released January 26th via Bella Union. The same week Emmy plays a few dates around the UK including one of London's Oslo on the 27th - details.
