Emmecosta Release New EP, Velour

The fashionable trio, Emmecosta, are poised to release their forthcoming “Velour” EP on 25 August 2017.  Swedish boutique music label ICEA adopted the Positano natives to polish their dream-pop soundscapes. Listeners were introduced to Emmecosta’s music at the end of 2016 and the dawn of 2017 with the tracks “His Power of Youth” and “Miguel”. The synths, punctuated guitar and silky vocals evoke memories of Phoenix circa 2004. The remaining two tracks, “Heavy Heart” and “A Mountain From Us” blend pulsing waves of synths and echoing vocals, mirroring Snakadaktal’s Sleep in the Water (2013). Listen here

In many ways, Emmecosta communicate intoxicating atmospheres with their dream-pop, reminiscent of Washed Out, where the muffled vocals paint the landscape and guide the listener to melt into nature. The music videos for “Miguel” and “His Power of Youth” were filmed in seaside Positano and Scandinavian forests, complementing the music and the story of the band. Emmecosta says, “There is a hidden romantic darkness in the actual story, which represents the band’s melancholy in relation to their hometown in Italy, and what it was been like to immigrate to Sweden. There is a craving for home, yet acceptance of new belonging.”  

“’Velour’ is the feeling of unshakable longing for a place we’ve never been. This is a specific form of wanderlust – a craving for a distant land or a deep feeling of ‘homesickness’ for a place we have never seen. We imagine distant places through small fragments: everyday life seen elsewhere. We are going through a strange sensation of disorientation, something magical seen from far away. We fall in love with this fragment. It holds the promise for more. We move around it.” – Emmecosta
