Emily Reo – “Peach”

For the better part of four years, Emily Reo has been quietly making dreamy home-recorded electronic pop in various corners of different underground music communities. Recently, Reo unveiled two new songs; they’re her first proper releases since 2010’s Witch Mntn tape on the short-lived but well-accomplished Breakfast of Champs label, and also her first studio recordings ever. On “Peach” (stream it below), Reo’s gleaming, wide-eyed dream-pop sounds clearer and more assured than ever.

The new tracks appear on Clubhouse, a 4-way split with three other female electronic pop songwriters: Wisconsin’s Johanne Swanson, a/k/a Yohuna; New York native Rebecca Doerfer, a/k/a Brown Bread; and Florida’s Malee Bringardner, a/k/a MoonLasso. Each artist on the tape brings a different approach to electronic pop: Yohuna’s contributions are moody and parred down, looping her vocals to sound like a choir of one. MoonLasso brings the most powerful, soul-inflicted vocals (her “Vibrasonics” has the biggest hook on the split), whereas Brown Bread’s patchwork of sounds brings the most experimental moment on “Sister”. Below, stream the lead track from the split, “Peach”, as well as the entire tape, out now via Crash Symbols.
