Introducing… Emily Magpie!

Having released her debut EP Same Stuff last year, Bristol-based artist Emily Magpie is set to share her forthcoming single The Witching Hour on 26th May 2017.

The single premiered on DIY and is also available to stream via Emily’s Soundcloud page.

The Witching Hour is inspired by the power of feminine energy, written after reading a book about the witch trials; “it’s a song about claiming your own power deep from within you”. Soaring with the rich passion of Magpie’s smooth, distinctive vocals alongside glitchy, pulsating beats, the single is an eerily majestic creation. It flows effortlessly with twinkling ukulele melodies juxtaposed against a soaring electronic soundscape, creating a dreamy, ambient insight into what Magpie is capable of. Fans of Tei Shi and Maggie Rogers will feel at home here.

Whilst travelling in South America last year, Emily enjoyed chance encounters with people such as Grammy and MTV Award winning artist Diego Ubierna (Adammo). As a result, Magpie was inspired to write a collection of captivating tracks filled with transcendental lyrics accompanying her unique, ethereal sound.

Emily Magpie has received acclaim from well-regarded publications such as Gigslutz, as well as performing a live session for Sofar Sounds. She is currently putting the finishing touches on her forthcoming EP, with help from Anuj Robin.

You can also catch Emily live at the following dates:

5th May – Islington – London

29th May – Blue Lagoon – Bristol

2nd June – St James Wine Vaults – Bath

10th June Home Farm Festival – Somerset

The Witching Hour, the forthcoming single from Emily Magpie, is out 26th May 2017.
