Emma Garrett Unveils New Single 'This Is It' On 17th March 2014

Emma Garrett describes her music as "avant-garde pop".  On paper the acoustic multi-instrumented components could be labeled folk, but the reality is a sound so explosive it bursts out of any such genre confines. Garrett's sound is intoxicating, built on idiosyncratic structures and overflowing with experimental urges and an emotion so raw words cannot do it justice. 

Comparisons to other female artists are inevitable. Emma Garrett has already been likened to Kate Bush, Florence and the Machine, Bat For Lashes and Anna Calvi. It's perhaps the latter two that fit best for Garrett for she shares in common with Bat For Lashes a skill for dark, grandiose arrangements and in Anna Calvi there's a feeling that lyrically the two women may be kindred spirits. With both there's a sense that their songs of impassioned anguish are an outpouring of personal demons. Unleashed to the world, yet lyrically always obscured by a kind of poetry that makes them directly inscrutable. 

Garrett was classically trained, reared on arias with the potential to become an opera singer. She attended ceilidhs on Scottish family holidays which led to a love for strings and folky rhythms. In her teens Garrett's head was turned to a heavier sound, when a new found love of rock (Korn, System Of A Down) which led to her writing songs on the guitar. These elements all contribute to the artist Garrett is today. 

London based, Garrett gained attention through local shows in the capital (solo initially, but now with a band).  In late 2013 she released the video for her track 'Dose Me Up, which premiered on Clash who praised her "sweeping, dramatic songwriting".  

Now Garrett is set to release brand new single 'This Is It' on 17th March.
