NEW SINGLE - THE ONLY MOMENT IN THE WORLD - OUT NOW!
After a four-year hiatus in the electro genre, Emily will be releasing her first of several downtempo alt pop songs with this latest single. Co-produced and mixed by Jimmy LaValle of The Album Leaf, the song was created as part of a digital pop-up book project, A Picture is Worth..., published by Proseed Books, which paired musicians and photographers together to create a work based on the imagery provided. Drawing on images of industrial French river towns at the break of day by photographer Veronique Robin, the song follows a couple as they wind their way along the water and through a history of their affair.
