It’s been a while since we at TGTF have heard anything from Emmy the Great (aka Emma-Lee Moss), but she has recently dived back into the music scene with a new track called ‘Swimming Pool’. The track is slickly sultry, more heavily produced than Moss’s past work, and features the vocal talents of Wild Beasts‘ Tom Fleming to illustrate what is described in the caption to the accompanying video as “a hologram’s final interaction with its owner”.
‘Swimming Pool’ is the lead single from Emmy the Great‘s upcoming EP, titled simply ‘S’, due for release in January 2015 on Bella Union.

We’re pleased to see The Very Best – singer Esau Mwamwaya and producer Johan Hugo – make a reappearance. Their new single ‘Hear Me’ came from a politically charged place: the pair was in Malawi during the time of the latest presidential election in Malawi and also the 50th anniversary of the country getting their independence from colonial rule. The song soundtracks a beautifully shot – and turns out secretly shot also – time lapse video of Malawi shot by the duo themselves.
A new album is in the works. In the meantime, if you’d like to read more from our previous coverage on the Very Best, come this way.
‘I Forget Where We Were’ is the title track on Ben Howard‘s stunning recent LP, released in back in October, reviewed here. The starkly metaphorical new video, a directorial debut for Howard, features a slightly-shortened version of the track and plays off of the song’s abstractly poetic lyrics, visually capturing the balance between romance and realism in just the way Howard’s music does on the album.
Irish singer/songwriter Hozier has upped the ante once again, unveiling not one but two separate videos for his recent single ‘From Eden’. The song features on both his self-titled debut album and the earlier ‘From Eden’ EP. The album version of the song is slightly different to the EP version, and the new official video highlights one of the main differences between the two iterations, namely the slithering, flamenco-flavoured instrumental bridge. The video takes a slightly off-kilter view of the oft-celebrated Bonnie and Clyde scenario, perfectly synching the crisis point of the dramatic action with the aforementioned bridge section.
In addition to the official video, Sofar Sounds have just premiered a live performance video from Hozier’s appearance at their Manchester showcase back in September. The intimate Manchester performance features a stripped back version of ‘From Eden’, emphasising Hozier’s soulful singing and bluesy acoustic guitar chops over his sense of dramatic flair. The skillfully edited video below demonstrates both the high quality of Hozier’s musicianship and the cozy, informal atmosphere that has become synonymous with Sofar Sounds. Watch both below.

A Sunny Day in Glasgow released their latest album ‘Sea When Absent’ back in the summertime, out now on Lefse Records. (Read Carrie’s review of the LP here.) Their latest promo is for ‘Crushin”, and the dissonant guitars of the song work well with the dark, ominous video treatment. Watch it below.
