Following on from Emilia Tarrant’s up-tempo release ‘If Love is A Gun’ (Spotify NMF, Fresh Finds, New Pop UK), the emotive pop ballad ‘Here You Are, Again’ (added to multiple Apple Editorial playlists inc Breaking Pop) and the earlier piano-backed single ‘Honeymoon Phase’, (added to 6 Apple Playlist on the day of release and Shazam Global chart No 23), this emerging British singer-songwriter conclude her debut EP with the resounding melancholic track ‘September’. Already supported by the likes of Wonderland, Mahogany, Killing Moon, Up Next Sessions, CLOUT, Lock Magazine, CULTR, Milky Magazine and more, Emilia is a fast-rising British songwriting talent to keep an eye out for.
“September has to be my favourite song from my debut Honeymoon Phase EP. I wrote it with the lovely Archie Faulks back in September (of course) last year, during a time when I was quite reflective on 2020 and the end of summer. I feel September is a month of ‘drawing the curtains’ as autumn arrives, which can be quite tough, and ‘tender’ for some. We took lyrical inspiration from the events of the month, my favourites having to be ‘berries are bitter, the swallows have flown’. I loved exploring this sort of lyricism with Archie, as well as picking up it’s pace with producer Luke Potashnick (Gabrielle Aplin) in the studio. As the final track of the EP, we wanted its production to be quite ethereal; a calming way to encapsulate and reflect on the EP as a collection of thoughts.”
