There’s this well-known phrase “mature beyond their years” and it’s one that could easily be applied to singer-songwriter Emilia Tarrant who possesses a certain old soul quality. Yet, you could also argue that her music is a reflection of the turbulence, uncertainty and excitement of being 19-years-old.
For many, this time in their lives is when they’ll first encounter serious romance and heartache, something that the Wincester-based artist explored in her last single ‘Honeymoon Phase’, which was credited by the likes of Wonderland, Mahogany, CLOUT, POPMUZIK, The Music Enthusiast, Up Next Sessions and more. This new release ‘Here You Are, Again’ however, is an even more personal and vulnerable offering from Tarrant, which was written during the second UK lockdown. We know that it threw up all manner of mental, emotional and physical challenges for everyone, including teenagers and young adults.
“‘Here You Are, Again’ is a song brought on from the drop of my mental state after just entering the second lockdown of last year. After experiencing this collapse in emotion multiple times (one day feeling content, and the next, real sadness) I realised that mental health comes and goes as it pleases. It’s really tiring, and something I had hoped wouldn’t last forever, hence the lyric: ‘maybe I was a lil naive to believe that it would be that easy’. Whether it is mental health, a complicated relationship, or the recent ups and downs of the pandemic, I feel the song is relatable to anyone who struggles with the repetitive nature of life.” – Emilia Tarrant
Once again, Emilia Tarrant’s trademark contemporary piano-pop sound translates the brevity of her emotional depth, a result of collaborating with producer Luke Potashnick (Gabrielle Aplin).
