Watch below the video for new single “Disarmed“.
“Due to different events and departures in my life I was left with the feeling that I had lost everything”, Emma Acs tells. “When your world is turned up side down, and you sit in a strange new apartment with broken dreams, you will naturally search for a new grip. I couldn’t stand anything old for a while. I couldn’t stand the music I used to listen to, I threw a lot of stuff out that while blasting trap music loudly from the speakers”.
Instead of searching for inspiration where her roots are, which in undeniably in rock music, Emma was deeply drawn to the anger and agression in hip hop and chaotic experimental techno-like music. She worked late nights with producer Mathias Sarsgaard, who also produced Yung Lean’s Jonathan Leandoer127 project.
“Mathias picked me up, wrote my name all over his calendar so we could be in the studio. I owe him a lot. I used the studio as a punching bag for better and worse” Emma says. “He was down to be in the studio from late nights and early mornings and I needed that cause I didn’t sleep. I was really angry. Anger has always been my go-to energy source when being sad”.
The EP While I Shoot From My Fortress of Delusions will be released via Third Coming Records on January 31st.
