Emerson Star – “Great Escaper EP”

Emerson Star is a quintet hailing from Southern California, and Great Escaper is the band’s latest EP. At a mere five tracks and just a little over twenty minutes of run time, this EP really doesn’t leave a lot of room for error. Each of the five tracks features an eclectic range of influences, but it still paints a vivid picture of 21st century youth trying to make sense of chaos in the present day. In the songwriting aspect, the tracks are very relatable and sonically they utilize soaring harmonies, psychedelic reveries, and textured wordplay. Loads of fun from start to finish!
