Today, Emeryld announces her new EP, Bloodline, to be released in January on Neon Gold Records. After releasing “Bombs Away” and“Scandal”, she releases the EP title track “Bloodline” and the accompanying visual today as well. She is the newest signing on the record label that brought you Charli XCX, HAIM, MARINA, Christine and the Queens, Matt Maeson etc.
“Bloodline” is about poking fun in a slightly campy & playful way at how a potential suitor’s performative actions when trying to be noticed often come across cringe, embarrassing but nonetheless entertaining. Emeryld says: “I think a lot of our habits and ways of being trace back to childhood. It’s inherently in our blood line, but the cool thing is we can practice unweaving ourselves from the webs of habit that don’t serve us. It takes work to become the version of ourselves we would admire that feels authentic and enough. Bloodline on the surface, is honestly blaming everyone else and their predisposition and realizing my tangled webs through the process.”
Earlier, she released “Scandal”, in which she examines and questions a predisposition for toxic relationships over a multi-layered beat and hypnotic guitar, produced by Solomonophonic (Remi Wolf, Dora Jar etc). She started the year with “Bombs Away”, accompanied by a timeless music video directed by Andy Madeleine.
Emeryld projects truth and the nuance of love as loudly as possible in her music. The Texas raised singer, songwriter, and genre alchemist speaks her mind over a canvas of sparkling alternative, unpredictable rock, lush pop, stitched together with resounding, soulfully evocative, and ethereally powerful vocals. Inspired by the likes of Pat Benatar, Heart, Lady Gaga, and Marvin Gaye, that exploration started in earnest at age fourteen when she performed at SXSW for the first time.
Three years later, she moved to Los Angeles where she embraced her destiny by diving into her passion wholeheartedly. By 2019, she found herself captivating crowds at local hotspots as she released her Young EP highlighted by “Cellophane” and “Hope You’re Happy” feat. EARTHGANG. The project notably racked up 4 million Spotify streams and counting. She maintained her momentum in 2020 with “97 gold infiniti.” Of the latter, V Magazine proclaimed, “Emeryld is taking us on an intoxicating ride.” On its heels, “Right There” elicited similar enthusiasm with Lyrical Lemonade hailing it as “a 10/10.”
After amassing over 10 million streams and counting and garnering acclaim from Billboard, FLAUNT, Lyrical Lemonade, V Magazine, and more, her spirit and identity expand on her upcoming Bloodline EP.
