Holy crap. Occasionally a song comes along that just takes you by complete surprise. In witness thereof, with Boy, 19-year-old Aussie Emma Louise created one of the most amazing tunes I've ever heard.
After listening to it a kazillion times, I came across Jungle and was instantly captivated by its seedy underbelly. There must be something about this singer-songwriter. Where Boy is delicate and demure, Jungle brings a purring strength and confidence. Infectious from the start. At multiple points throughout the song, I found myself completely floored by twists, turns, and absolute harmonic perfection. Here you have the video, hot off the press. BTW, after seeing her brand new hairstyle, I'm almost determined to get my hair cut short.
Both hits are actually from a 2011 EP entitled Full Hearts & Empty Rooms. Whimsical and borderline ambient, the soft wonders of Emma Louise voice will hold your head in her heavenly clouds of intimate song writing abilities to comfort you. From the first beat, the tracks carry a momentum and insight which is amazing, considering this was her first release. Listening to her music, immediately I zoom back to my first listen of Florence or Kimbra. Whatcha think?
This tune has all the earmarks of becoming a hit this summer. I have compiled some of the remixes that will be played soon in dance floors all around the world. Check them out!
