One would assume following ‘Something Beautiful’ would be a tasking feat but Emaé doesn’t disappoint. The second single ‘Know you’ further announces the talent of the Scottish bred songstress. If there’s anything I value, it’s an artist who’s vulnerable and so intune with themselves and others that it bleeds through the lyrics. ‘Know You’ explores the singers fears and joys in deepening her relationships. As a socially awkward being, I had my notepad at the ready.
Emaé pairs candid imagery with clear and crisp diction, delivering her message in sonic HD. The musical arrangement is one that rivals any country-folk troupe from sunny shores of Dorset; true to her soulful ecletic folk-pop sound. The layering of sound creates an uplifting warmth building upon the message of love and freedom in loving people, weird and wonderful, fearlessly. The flirty ad-libs and sing-a-long melodies are recipe for a catchy hook. I promise you, as you try to sleep “getting to know you..oh oh..oh oh..” while playing on a continual loop until you admit defeat.
With whispers of an album project in the distant future, it will be interesting to see what else she has in store of us. I personally would like to hear a softer side, to this fearless cat.
