EMMA WALL - 'Bittersweet'
EMMA WALL delivers a meticulously crafted dose of upbeat pop, exploring the ‘Bittersweet’ aspects of an on and off again love.
Scandinavia has been home to some of the best pop music of all the time and Stockholm-based EMMAL WALL looks set to follow in the footsteps of Tove Styrke, Sigrid and Zara Larsson in delivering punchy, polished pop that feels fresh and exciting despite its mainstream familiarity.
‘Bittersweet’ is an airy and upbeat song that starts with warm electronics before introducing exciting new layers. It’s playful and vibrant but there’s tinges of melancholia as the track looks at the theme of love and how it can be dysfunctional and uncertain.
’EMMA’S vocal is smooth and full of attitude, and the song is executed with a fiery and enthusiastic energy. However, ‘Bittersweet’ sonically and thematically finishes abruptly and purposefully, impressively leaving its listener feeling like they’ve been on an exhilarating rollercoaster ride that they want to stay on for a second time around.
