Swedish singer Emma Nylén’s solo project, Emmon, first reached my musical consciousness in 2009 with the release of the magnificent, Closet Wanderings. There was a fun and independent sensibility to her music, a cross between Robyn and Billie Ray Martin, and it was magical. Two singles were released, Secret and Lies and Lips On Fire. Both were awesome, but after the singles she disappeared and I hadn’t heard anything about her until now. Emmon is back with a vengeance and this is to be the first single off the new album. The video is a retro tongue-in-cheek look at a seance where Emmon holds all the cards. She also occasionally breaks out with arm wailing awkward dancing (does it remind anyone else of Opus III’s Fine Day video?). Hope you enjoy it.
