It's a question I'd have never thought I'd ask but it has an answer I'm pretty pleased with.
Just how this collaboration came about I'm not sure but Norman Cook's new project 'Brighton Port Authority' features a whole host of special guests including DiS Recordings' Martha Wainwright and David Byrne. Pretty exciting, ay?
If you know me then you will probably heard me saying at some point or other that Emmy The Great is one of my favourite people in music, like ever. There is just something about her simple blend of melancholy anti-folk mixed with splashes of humour that I think is awesome. After doing the backing vocals for some of my favourite London-based musicians (Lightspeed Champion, Jeremy Warmsley) and seeing her own backing band find chart success (Noah & The Whale) before she'd even released anything other than vinyl singles and EPs she is finally starting to come to the attention of the wider world. Her debut album is now finished and will be released early next year (finally!) for those who are interested.
Talking about the actual song though, it's a fairly simple and sweet electronic-tinged melodic affair. A song you might play in the car and let breeze between your ears, humming along and then it's over just as quickly. I think it's growing on me...
