We were delighted this morning to find an e-mail from Emily Reo in our in-box. She is one of our very favourite experimental/ambient/darkpop songstresses, and had dropped us a line to send us a brand new collaboration with the highly regarded Blackbird Blackbird.
It was a combination to whet the appetite: sampling her unique vocal style and phrasing and then looping it firmly over spectacular icy beats and synths, the song still retains a sticky, sweet heartbeat that pulses with melody and will have you pressing the repeat button as soon as its over.
It is retro enough to be cool, contemporary enough to keep the buzz going, but above all it is good enough to still be on your playlist in 12 months time.
Watch out for Blackbird Blackbird’s Modern Disbelief EP…
