There’s something immediately spell-binding about the music of Emily Soon. With a string of singles and EPs under her belt, the Melbourne-based singer-songwriter has spent the past number of years crafting a sound that feel simultaneously grounded and explorative; it’s rooted in acoustic pop, but reaches far wider.
Now, with the release of her latest single Good Help Is Hard To Find, she continues to explore new sonic territories, further building herself as one of Aussie music’s more exciting emerging songwriters. It should go without saying that we’re stoked to be premiering it for you today.
On her new single Good Help Is Hard To Find, Melbourne singer-songwriter Emily Soon presents an atmospheric slice of lo-fi acoustic-pop brilliance.
Throughout the new single, Emily glides through a hypnotic blend of folk, pop, and atmospheric noise-rock to craft a sound uniquely her own. With ethereal guitar lines and haunting vocal melodies, the track begins as a ghostly slice of folk listening bliss. In its choruses, however, the song explodes into a fuzzed-out wall of sound, washing over you completely.
Across the single’s three-minute run-time, Emily Soon pulls in myriad sonic directions—she never sits in one place for too long. One moment you’ll be floating through serene guitar flourishes, and the next you’ll be immersed completely in layers of charmingly lo-fi noises.
Good Help Is Hard To Find is the latest in a string of consistently great releases from Emily Soon, and judging by the quality of everything we’ve heard so far, I think we can safely expect plenty more quality tunes.
