If we’re being totally honest, we’re a bit embarrassed that we haven’t introduced you to Emilia Tarrant sooner. At only 19 years old, the Winchester pens the most breathtaking ballads you wouldn’t believe. To prove this to you, we invite you to fall in love with Tarrant’s heartbreaking new single, “Honeymoon Phase.”
On “Honeymoon Phase,” Emilia Tarrant reflected,
“‘Honeymoon Phase’ is based on the stereotypical fairytale beginning that most new relationships endure, and surviving the end of it. It covers the ebbs and flows of a new relationship, the choice we face whether it’s worth fighting for, as well as the inevitable cyclical argumentative stage: ‘we fight, we cry, we hug, we fight again.”
If you’ve ever been in a long term relationship, you must be familiar with the coveted honeymoon phase. As Tarrant croons about the highs and lows of intimate relationships, “Honeymoon Phase” overwhelms us with soul-stirring emotions. Now that we’ve familiarized ourselves with Tarrant, it’s safe to say you’ll want to keep her on your radar.
“I was extremely excited to work with producer Luke Potashnick on ‘Honeymoon Phase’ for my first time recording with multi-instrumental layered production. To start, we recorded using a dampened piano, covering the strings of the piano with a blanket for a soft and slightly out of tune sound to reflect the bittersweet subject. We layered many different sounds over this to express emotional turmoil and a sense of desperation.”
