Emmy the Great : We Almost Had a Baby
emmy

There’s an abundance of lovely lady pop singers, especially coming out of the UK, nowadays. Emmy the Great – hailing from Hong Kong, residing in London – is a welcome addition to the pack. She sings beautifully over jangly guitars and well-used “ooh”s and “aaah”s. But her debut album ‘First Love’ isn’t as peachy as it sounds – it takes its name from Samuel Beckett’s disturbing little novel about a violent and misogynistic lover. And if you listen closely to the first single, “We Almost Had a Baby,” you realize its the prettiest song you’ve ever heard about abortion and maybe-rape.
