Absolutely Fantastic!

First and foremost, Symphony 6 and 4 are just to die for. They are beautiful pieces. Juicy is a good cover for her, even though it wouldnt seem like it would be. She totally makes the song her own (like everything she does). Symphony 9's remix is desolate and errie but as beautiful as the original version. Whiskey and Rags is upbeat, fun, and deep. A brand new spectacular song. Take It Easy San Francisco is just as breathetaking. Ive seen her perform this live and it just blows the mind. Over all this little EP is filled with spectacular music, but what else would one expect from Emily Wells?

And if you don't know, now you know ...

There are so many ways to describe Emily Wells' voice. I've read reviews that said she sounds like a cross between Joanna Newsom and Devendra Banhart, and still others who say she sounds like Portishead's Beth Gibbons. I like to think Wells' voice sounds like what one imagines a fay in the Arthurian myths would sound like if she were seducing you toward some dark lake. (I say that in a hugely complimentary way.) It's the way her pitch is, the timbre, the echo, the way she adorningly stylizes the drag in her words. It's the way she phrases her lyrics as if she were wrapping them around something. She sings, as much as unfurls, that gorgeous sound around us. It's really quite beautiful and enchanting. Wells is a serious talent, who writes music outside simple genre classification. Just when you think she's alternative, she waxes hip-hop. She melds classical and KORG, toy-echo microphone and ukelele. She's a loop-pedal lover who rips one wickedly soaring violin. Wells creates beats to bob your head to, and pens lyrics odd, insightful and completely her own. Wells' surreal music often feels like a world within itself. It reduces the daily sound around it to something less consequential. That's quite a feat in an age of sound overload -- and I'm so grateful for it.

wow

this ep or idk album is sick, i wish there were more songs and i couldn't wait to buy it. I had Emily Well's first album but this is so different and so interesting. Her voice its a lot like Joanna Newsom's but its a lot more soothing and unique then listening to her.

Biography

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '10s

Emily Wells' songwriting combines electronics, orchestral strings, jazz structures, pop sensibilities, and vibrato-laden vocals into one eclectic package. A former child prodigy, she began fielding offers from record labels during her teenage years. Wells balked at the idea of relinquishing creative control to a team of producers, however, and independently toured the country to support her music instead. After relocating to Los Angeles, she built a home studio and set to work on her debut album....
