Emilyn Brodsky – “Hands Off The Stove”

Emilyn Brodsky has been pairing bright and sunny melodies with notably darker, knotted sentiments for two albums now — 2008’s …Greatest Tits and 2014’s …Eats Her Feelings — and she’s continuing that balancing act with her latest full-length, Emilyn Brodsky’s Digestion, which was primarily written during a two-month-long self-imposed isolation in Montana after a long tour. Lead single “Hands Off The Stove” is a jubilant-sounding song that asks weighty moral questions atop brass and orchestral flourishes: “If you’re willing to kill, is it really a good intention?” Brodsky asks in the powerhouse chorus. “I always wanted to write a huge New Pornographers style triumphant pop outro, so I made myself a chorus of horns and angels singing LALALALA to you,” Brodsky says of the track, which she describes as a “self-help anthem.” Listen below.
