A bewitching collection of tracks juxtaposing an ethereal splendour with driving electronics, The Witching Houris a reflection on the magic of the everyday and of being human. It is inspired by a trip to South America and draws on the empowering feeling of freedom when travelling. EP opener and title track ‘The Witching Hour’focuses on the power of feminine energy. Written after reading a book about the witch trials, Emily explains “it’s a song about claiming your own power deep from within you”. It soars with the rich passion of Magpie’s smooth, distinctive vocals alongside glitchy, pulsating beats. Leave It To Fate showcases the impassioned beauty of her songwriting, as dreamy ukulele melodies flow alongside Emily’s celestial vocals akin to the likes of This Is The Kit or Maggie Rogers’ sparkling charm. Folk-influenced ‘Angel Face’ and ‘When We Find It’ are interwoven with sweeping electronic soundscapes to conclude a truly captivating collection.

Whilst travelling in South America last year, Emily enjoyed chance encounters with people such as Grammyand MTV Award winning artist Diego Ubierna (Adammo) who inspired her unique, otherworldly sound. Now, having already received acclaim from the likes of The Line Of Best FitDIY Magazine and Clash, and charmed crowds at Green Man Festival and Sofar Sounds, she has worked alongside co-producer Anuj Robin to create The Witching Hour and hopes to continue to enchant listeners with her mystical creations.

Catch Emily live, supporting Sticks, at The Finsbury on 18th December 2017.
