Emily Breeze

EMILY BREEZE, the Bristol based indie noir-pop artist returns with a bitter-sweet new single dripping with brit-goth nostalgia and sad-pop synth lines, ‘Ordinary Life’ released by Sugar Shack Records on 23rd Sept 2022.  Radio Impact is slated for Oct 7th 2022.

EMILY’s previous single “Confessions of an Ageing Party Girl'', received airplay from Lauren Laverne, Don Letts and Tom Robinson alongside continued support from BBC Radio Bristol and BBC Introducing in the West.  “Ordinary Life” continues in this vein, a reflection on a gloriously misspent youth and a celebration of the magic, misery, miracles and monotony that are sewn into the fabric of everyday existence where you are the hero of your own mythic quest. Speaking of the inspiration for the song Emily says,  “It’s a quest that involves biblical first loves and tragic one night stands, epic all nighters and the quiet desperation that follows as your dreams disperse like the fronds of a dandelion clock in the cold morning air. You blink, two decades have passed and you become the thing you always despised, a three dimensional, functional adult with reasonable expectations. Or perhaps it's the theme song to the end of a John Hughes movie set twenty years after Prom night, except it's not prom night, it's Butlins and Mike Leigh is directing but Simple Minds and Souxsie Sioux are still sparkling in the spotlight, and so are you.”

‘Ordinary life’ is the opening track to Emily’s third solo Album Rapture which she describes as “A collection of coming-of (middle) age stories which celebrate flamboyant failure, excess and acceptance” due for release January 2023.  Recorded at Rockfield Studios with all star players Rob Norbury (lead guitar), Andy Sutor (drums), Graham Dalzell (bass) and Helen Stanley (synth) and produced by Stew Jackson (Massive Attack).   ‘Ordinary Life’ was Produced by Stew Jackson, engineered by Joe Jones and mastered by Pete Maher.

EMILY BREEZE released her first solo album The Penny Arcade in 2010 garnering critical acclaim including album of the year in Americana U.K and support from BBC Radio 6 which resulted in Emily being described as “The love child of P.J Harvey and Johnny Cash” in The Sunday Times followed by performances at Glastonbury Festival, a headline slot at Bristol Festival and U.K and European tour dates. Emily then went on to form psychedelic post-punk band Candy Darling and released two double A-side seven-inch singles “Money” and “Going Straight” which were supported by BBC Intro, The NME, and Louder Than War. 2019 saw the release of Emily’s second solo album Rituals produced by Stew Jackson (Massive Attack) which also received positive reviews in national press (Mojo, Irish Times) and airplay from BBC Intro in the West, XFM and BBC Radio 6.
