UPCOMING: Emily O’Connell

artworks-000067756400-ne30wc-t500x500It’s rare to come across something with little-to-no buzz these days. The last time we did this was when we stumbled across the unsigned Liberty Laverne; this time it’s the completely raw and unvarnished artistry of Emily O’Connell (or emmy.music if we’re going by her Soundcloud). Her YouTube page is full of the standard covers you’d see on X Factor, but her original demos are something really quite special. Slow, haunting, and reminiscent of Julia Holter and Marissa Nadler, there’s something really quite special brewing here. Someone sign her up, pronto.
