"...a three-chord gem helmed by Atkinson's breathy, crystalline vocal."
- The Line of Best Fit
EMILIE, aka Emily Atkinson, creates dark, melodic electro-pop with her latest single Eyes For You, due for release on 9th September 2016 via Stellar Recordings.
The track premiered on The Line Of Best Fit and you can also listen to it via EMILIE's Soundcloud page now.
Eyes For You, taken from debut EP I See You In The Darkness, explores the feeling of suppression and how things can be seen as defeatist or unreachable. Tackling the subject with grace and dignity, EMILIE allows the music to speak for itself combining electro-pop beats and stunning ethereal vocals akin to the likes of London Grammar's Hannah Reid.
Currently based in Edinburgh, Emily dedicates her time solely to EMILIE. On all her tracks Emily performs vocals and synths herself with the help of a producer and drummer for percussion and sampling. Having played the Scottish live circuit for the past year, including a support slot with SG Lewis in Glasgow, Emily is ready to introduce the rest of the UK to her broody take on electro-pop.
Eyes For You by EMILIE is out 9th September 2016 via Stellar Recordings.
