“Rapids” is the newest glimpse of music from Emmy The Great since the release of this year’s LP Second Love. Singer-songwriter Emma-Lee Moss explains that her new single was an instant attempt at a fresh start following the intense album cycle:
I wanted to write something to be released quickly, symbolically for myself, so that I know that the album cycle is over and it’s all new from here. The song ended up being about that tussle with music, about a question I am asking myself now — am I going to keep this relationship going or do I let it go? Could I even let it go? It’s a love song to music, and so I see it as the right link between Second love and what comes next. Watch this space for more, I guess.
“Rapids” is a shimmering love song that has captured the lush essence of nature with chirping sounds, romantic embellishments, and sunlit vocals. It’s a charming investigation about falling head over heals. Listen below.
