Emmy The Great finally releases her eagerly awaited self produced and self released debut album First Love on February 9th. An album that sees Hong Kong born, London based songwriter Emma-Lee Moss aka Emmy The Great and her band, fulfill the promise they’ve shown for the past few years. If the beguiling first single ‘We Almost Had A Baby’ (the tale of a floundering relationship suddenly facing unplanned permanence), whetted your appetite then you won’t be disappointed. First Love is a beautifully observed album exhibiting Emma's quality songwriting her sighing tones weaving intricate, at times stark pictures of the fleeting life affirming moments and relationship trauma that pervade her world. It's fleshed out by the entire outfit’s passive aggressive music, pared back folksy, bittersweet, pop tunes. 2009 could be the year Emmy The Great does a ‘Laura Marling’ crossing into wider recognition that her first long-playing record deserves. We caught up with Emma for a chat on the eve of its release for a chat about her relationship with Alexandra, her past, her work, the album ‘First love’ and potential fights between Jeremy Warmsley and Lightspeed Champion.
