EMA – ‘Marked’

An ominous rumble of a song

Remember the twinkly bits from Jessie Ware’s song? That’s the stuff [a]EMA[/a] makes her music out of: the scrape of raw knuckle across guitar string, an ominous rumble, a worried child’s internal monologue, the wheezing of an asthmatic angel, leaning on the organ in a church, these are her fragments. How she manages to sew them all into a recognisable quilt by the end of proceedings is anyone’s guess.
