– Brisbane-based artist shares new video
– See/hear ‘Sunlight’ now
Following packed out debut London shows at The Sebright Arms & The Shacklewell Arms last month, Brisbane newcomer Emerson Snowe has shared a new video for single “Sunlight,” which is available now via Liberation Records.
Emerson Snowe is the moniker of 23 year old Brisbane-based Jarrod Mahon, who bursts onto the scene with a rapturous, upbeat and sunny slice of garage pop. He’s been spending the summer in Paris and this new self-directed video was filmed across the city during his stay.
Premiered by Matt Wilkinson on Beats 1, “Sunlight“ follows on from “Could You Love Me?” – Emerson Snowe’s first release with Liberation Records earlier this year – and showcases another string from his musical bow. Fans might recognise him as one of the founding members of much-loved Brisbane band, The Creases. Under the Emerson Snowe moniker, Mahon is able to create music as a stream of consciousness, free from anxiety and doubt. Each song he writes is crafted swiftly and assuredly, with no second glances.
“Emerson Snowe is a project that I have had for years, since I was in school. It has always been some form of an outlet of representing my ‘true’ self in a way. It started as a kind of heightened version of my self-awareness but overtime I’m finding it to become basically who I am as a person. This has given me the confidence I’ve always wanted to give my art and music.”
Emerson Snowe’s charming yet unconventional approach to music has already attracted the attention of many of his idols, including Ariel Pink, Courtney Barnett and King Krule – all of whom he has supported. He recently played his debut UK shows, including a headline show that saw him charm the audience, performing both solo and with a full band for the first time.
