Emma McGrath releases her latest single ‘Other Side’ via Young Poet Records, taken from her upcoming four-track EP, to be released this Autumn.

‘Other Side’ is another one of Emma’s knockout pop singles. Musically, it is a bold and vulnerable song with plenty of guitar reverb, bare-boned lyrics, and anthemic choruses; all created with the same tenacity as Emma’s former releases.

Speaking about the track, Emma explains,

“Other Side is the first song I wrote in the US. The song started out with my best mate Alfie and I deciding we needed a quality country song, but it very, very quickly turned into something else! The song is about needing honesty; I can’t fix any of your problems, but I’ll promise to be there and help you through the ups and downs of life. I’m almost asking for permission, not wanting to give my all to something for fear of being let down; I’m searching for reassurance.”

Live, Emma is a force to be reckoned with – the last year has seen her tour support slots with Lucy Spraggan, CharlotteGainsbourg, and KT Tunstall, further broadening her ever-growing fan base.

‘Other Side’ is available for streaming and digital download HERE.
