It was last year, with the release of her album Everything’s A Rhythm, that we were first introduced to the dynamic folk-rock sounds of Emily Rigz. The Blue Mountains-based artist creates music that feels simultaneously grounded and far-reaching; it’s raw and earthy, but also endlessly energetic.
Now, with the release of her latest single Big Scary Mountain, Rigz continues to build herself as of the most exciting emerging singer-songwriters in Aussie music. If you’re not already across this name, we strongly recommend you change that.
On her new single Big Scary Mountain, Blue Mountains-based singer-songwriter Emily Rigz delivers a dynamic slice of folk-rock brilliance.
Throughout the new single, Emily Rigz stomps through a blend of indie-rock, folk, and soul to craft a sound uniquely her own. With rich, textured instrumentation and powerful vocal hooks, Big Scary Mountain is the perfect showcase of Rigz’ songwriting abilities.
Over the course of its four-minute duration, the track pulls in myriad directions – it never sits in one place for too long. One moment you’ll be spellbound by Emily’s soulful vocals, and the next you’ll be smacked in the face by bluesy rock n’ roll power.
Big Scary Mountain is the latest in a string of consistently great releases from Emily Rigz, and judging by the quality of everything we’ve heard so far, I’m sure we can safely expect plenty more great material.
