‘Down in the Deep’ is an immersive listen, with Emily’s haunting vocals submerged in layers of swirling synth, guitar and piano.

Emily says “I created this EP to explore my own experience of being a woman- which is beautiful and messy! I wanted to extend this out in a universal way to others, all with their own unique stories and voices. The feminine, which exists outside of gender. There’s beauty, celebration, darkness and the unknown. Feminine energy is badass and there’s a massive history of it being suppressed which it’s important to challenge by us being heard.”

Immediately the shimmering tones and effects lace the very essential atmosphere, this warmth emits from the sparkling notes and the soundscape edges towards this cosmic cadence. Emily’s stunning vocal range joins the world, shifting the focus to the affectionate layers of her vocal notes, delicately looped with this explosive experimental touch. “Down In The Deep” is an enchanting exploration that moves the listener, the complexity in the atmospheric arrangement adds a stirring motion to this track, but Emily’s carefully placed harmonies and delicate injection lace the vision with this vivid emotive power.
