British singer Emma King has a new album entitled Deleted Scenes. The themes are empowerment, love, and life.
The music Pop/Brit Pop. Also, there are other genres mixed into the album Country and Rock. The record has the 80s and 90s vibe that parallels The Cranberries, Faith Hill, Cyndi Lauper, and Gwen Stefani’s music. There are also similarities. Here a couple of examples. The first one is the song Words I Miss the Most has similarities to the tune Graduation (Friends Forever). The second one is I’ve Never Felt Like This Before, which has a choir feel to it in which people sing in unity. The compositions are impressive and rich in sound and rhythm. The album has an old-school style with a modern twist. The guitar and the piano complement it nicely.
Emma King’s voice is versatile and incredible. She has a vocal style similar to Faith Hill, Cyndi Lauper, Gwen Stefani, and the late Dolores O’Riordan (The Cranberries’ lead singer). She sounds bold and confident in her singing.
The lyrics are powerful and romantic. Freestyle poetry is beautiful, described in detailed imagery. Two songs favour and inspire women’s empowerment: Indestructible and Eyes of the World. The tune A Thousand Stars is a poetic piece about adventure and the desire to discover the world. It’s a lovely metaphor, full of positivity and hope. The songs have an impressive range of subject matter. The tune I’ve Never Felt Like This Before has a romantic feel to it. The lyrics of each piece are well-written and full of depth.
The album Deleted Scenes is available.
