Emily Burns - Counting Seconds

Back in October we streamed Enemy by Emily Burns, a song that we described as her most assured to date. Scrub that, because she’s just gone one, possibly two, better. 

Counting Seconds finds Emily wanting to reconcile a relationship after everything’s gone wrong. “When I’m not mad anymore, and I’m not angry like before, I wonder if you’ve gotten over this too,” she ponders before she hits the subtle but show-stopping chorus. With its quiet layered harmonies, gentle beat and soft keys this ballad of sad desire, of wanting to get back together, is the prettiest thing we’ve heard all week.

Counting Seconds is currently free to download from Emily’s Soundcloud.
