EMA will release her album Exile in the Outer Ring August 25th on the City Slang label. With a number of high-powered tracks already under her belt, the now shares her new single ‘Blood and Chalk’. What could only be described as one epic pop offering powered by monumental production and EMA’s smokey vocal style, she has definitely elevated the levels to new heights.
In a press statement regarding ‘Blood and Chalk’, EMA wrote:
“‘Blood and Chalk’ was originally written for the #Horror soundtrack. I wrote the lyrics very quickly, with the idea that it was about the experience of being a 12 year-old girl, kind of right on the cusp between childhood and starting to grow up. But when I played it for Jake (Portrait) he said he thought it was about a police shooting. I was kind of shocked, but it also makes complete sense from that point of view. Makes me wonder if my subconscious mind was working on a different level, creating a double meaning.”
