EMA - Exile On The Outer Ring (City Slang) 2017
Artists like EMA – a.k.a. Erika M Anderson – are definitely needed in our lives. EMA’s third album is a neat and powerful effort about political alienation. She goes deeply personal on her new songs and points out what’s really happening in our society right now. Heavy guitar riffs, pop noise and folk melodies are the perfect soundtrack for the honesty and tenacity of her words. After releasing two incredible albums – 2010’s Past Life Martyred Saints and 2014’s The Future’s Void – EMA is more confident about expressing what’s on her mind and challenges the listener to get more involved with what’s really wrong in today’s world. It’s a strong and bold move, a statement to make people think and act.
