Sounds: Emily James // Foreign Land

Los-Angeles-by-way-of-New-York’s Emily James is 19 years old, doesn’t care about your genres or boxes, and built “Foreign Land” from top to bottom in her bedroom. Uh, I’m in.

“My songs don’t necessarily fit into one style of music. I write what truly inspires me from my feelings, emotions and experiences, and I try not to let any specific genre box me in.”

Stripped back yet driving, Emily’s ethereal, impassioned vocals are highlighted against an ambient soundscape. “Foreign Land,” her second single following a full-length debut record released in 2017, promises a lot from a burgeoning songwriter, performer, and producer, and we can’t wait to see what she comes up with next.
