The first offering from her three upcoming playlists takes the form of ‘Lovers’, a tightly-written collection created in LA, London and Hamburg and whose songs explore the confusing, messy world of the modern relationship. The character at the centre of Lovers is, Emmi admits, “me in every relationship I’ve ever been in: awkward and looking for someone to save her.” Eventually, the Emmi in these songs grows balls and says: “Enough.”
EMMI presses play on her grand plan with ‘Moments’, the first chapter of the ‘Lovers’ story, available now for download independently via Kobalt’s AWAL. Set at a party where the two lovers meet, she drunkenly croons about her deepest insecurities with a fresh new flow to the backdrop of a smooth R&B guitar track.
Emmi combines the shimmering attitudes of Rihanna and Tove Lo in tracks like “The Way We Used To” and “Won’t Do Love That Way” as she moves through the playlist with growing confidence, wearing a bright, red, hard-to-miss superhero cape all the while. Of her unusual fashion choice she explains, “It was only once the album was finished that I actually sat and listened back to my own lyrics and realised how much I put myself down with my words. How I’ve spent my life looking outside of myself for a saviour.” Not wanting to change a note of her confessions however, she turned to visuals to help her tell the same story in a different way. “The cape was a reminder that we are all stronger and more brilliant than we know.”
