Emily Burns - Enemy

Back in 2013 Emily Burns featured on Breaking More Waves in one of our ‘New Waves’ introducing pieces having impressed with her self-penned acoustic pop and the song Plasters, Glitter and Glue. That song and the others on her Soundcloud have now disappeared and have been replaced with 3 new tracks all of which show a big step forward.

It seems that Emily has found a groove. The guitar is out and in its place there’s a slicker modern production that takes in elements of r’n’b, disco and pop. On Mr Heartbreaker things are slinky and slow and Control is dance floor friendly and hot under the collar.

It’s the third of the newbies, uploaded today, that finds Emily giving us her most assured song to date. Recorded at Abbey Road studios with Pearse MacIntyre and Rob Cass, Enemy is constructed from laid back pianos and loose drums, with Emily singing of the one that got away. Its gentle sound works well, showing Emily's development and new found maturity. Let's hope its not so long before we feature her again on these pages.

Been watching Emily from the start. Her developing maturity shows an emerging superstar. Writing her own material is very impressive. Big career awaits.
