Oscar Coen Fantastic musicianship, deep lyricism, and consistently interesting melodies make for a fantastic experience from start to finish. Strangers is definitely my favorite, I love the contrast between the lighter sections and the heavier more driving parts. I'm excited to hear what Emily does next. Favorite track: Strangers.

about

This album is largely focused on the emotions that everyone feels, the things that make us human. Whether that's heartbreak, anxiety, depression, confusion, insomnia, etc. We are all together in those things, it is our common ground. Even though they ironically make us feel very, very alone.
For me this EP is the end of a stage, which in turn, is the beginning of a new one. It is my commencement into the next phase of my life, of my career, and of my music.

I want to thank everyone who finds home in these songs.
