“This song, in a way, feels like the first song I ever wrote,” says Emmanuelle. “Yes, it is self-deprecation at its finest and it’s the diary of a pessimist. It’s painfully confessional but it also led me in the right direction, sonically. It’s definitely my favorite song of the ones I’ve written thus far.”
Having drawn comparisons to everyone from Florence and the Machine to Billie Eilish and Halsey, Emmanuelle cuts her own groove on this latest release and will be extensively touring the U.S. throughout 2020.
