L.A.-based singer-songwriter Delacey just delivered her new single Emily, a mysterious and sinuously winding track that follows fast on two other acclaimed songs she’s released, My Man and The Subway Song.
Emily arrives via HITCO and Delacey wrote it as a tribute to her good friend and songwriter Emily Weisband. Delacey states, “I met Emily in France making music. It was one of those rare moments in life where you meet someone you know is going to play an important part in your life forever. She’s one of my best friends and soulmates and she’s a badass so I wrote this song for her.”
Emily is a tantalizing number that lyrically gets deeply personal amid the extended fluctuation of wavering synths, echoed, crisp percussion, and muffled drum beats. Delacey sighs out her velvety vocals with cool allure as she lifts up her friend with lines like, “You don’t know what you mean to me” and “You’re one of the best of ‘em in this world.”
Delacey is definitely an artist to keep an eye on. She’s gained praise from the likes of Idolator and BuzzFeed and racked up close to 7 million plays globally for My Man. Delacey will be continuing her L.A. residency at Hotel Café on August 7th and performing at music fests like Outside Lands and Austin City Limits.
