Emily Magpie shares new single ‘Leave It To Fate’!

Bristol-based songwriter Emily Magpie returns with her spellbinding sophomore EP, The Witching Hour, out 24th November 2017.

Taken from the EP, blissful new single Leave It To Fate premiered on The Line Of Best Fit and is available to listen to via Emily’s Soundcloud page now.

A bewitching collection of tracks juxtaposing an ethereal splendour with driving electronics, The Witching Hour is a reflection on the magic of the everyday and of being human. It is inspired by a trip to South America and draws on the empowering feeling of freedom when travelling. EP opener and title track ‘The Witching Hour’ focuses on the power of feminine energy. Written after reading a book about the witch trials, Emily explains “it’s a song about claiming your own power deep from within you”. It soars with the rich passion of Magpie’s smooth, distinctive vocals alongside glitchy, pulsating beats. Leave It To Fate showcases the impassioned beauty of her songwriting, as dreamy ukulele melodies flow alongside Emily’s celestial vocals akin to the likes of This Is The Kit or Maggie Rogers’ sparkling charm. Folk-influenced ‘Angel Face’ and ‘When We Find It’ are interwoven with sweeping electronic soundscapes to conclude a truly captivating collection.

Whilst travelling in South America last year, Emily enjoyed chance encounters with people such as Grammy and MTV Award winning artist Diego Ubierna (Adammo) who inspired her unique, otherworldly sound. Now, having already received acclaim from the likes of The Line Of Best Fit, DIY Magazine and Clash, and charmed crowds at Green Man Festival and Sofar Sounds, she has worked alongside co-producer Anuj Robin to create The Witching Hour and hopes to continue to enchant listeners with her mystical creations.

The Witching Hour, the forthcoming EP from Emily Magpie, is out 24th November 2017.
