With the way the world is currently set up, everyone is looking for a sense of escapism, whether it be basking in the sun on the coasts England or soaking up all the new tunes at this weekend’s various festivities. For us, Emma Elisabeth is giving us a much-needed dose of euphoria with her new single “Tray Full of Ash”. Introducing us to an indie-pop soundscape filled with subtle rhythmics and building guitars, the singer beautifully glides over the summer-tinged production guiding us into a sweet ecstasy.
Speaking on the single, the artist said, “The lyrics deal with holding on to the past for too long, so much that it prevents living in the present. How people from the past turn into “ghosts” in my own head and heart because I can’t let go, turning into nothing but dust and old memories. And this feeling of both wanting to let go and hold on while trying to break out of an emotional time warp. It’s haunting and at the same time hopeful, and somehow both embraces the melancholy and shines a light on the way out of it.”
Growing up surrounded by music and playing in various bands, the singer went on to study at the prestigious Kulturama in Stockholm before venturing around the world and playing in various cities. Due to release her LP in due course, we’re expected more serene sounds from the singer in the coming months.
