We wouldn’t be surprised if you’ve never heard of emie nathan before, but after one listen, it’ll be a name you never forget. Raised in a musical household, nathan found it fitting that she’d eventually become a musician who’s desperate to share her innate talents with the world. With only a few releases to her name, nathan is ready to amaze you with her stellar new single, “roses.”
On “roses,” emie nathan shared,
“The chorus describes how easy it is to look back on a moment in time with rose-tinted glasses, imagining everything better than it was in reality. This song narrates how I see it for exactly what it was, the good with the bad and the sweetness that lies in both.”
Wavering between alternative and pop tendencies, “roses” showcases intriguing electronics alongside nathan’s piercing vocals. Lyrically, “roses” perfectly represents nathan finally acknowledging both the good and bad of a given situation. If you haven’t already, we highly suggest you add nathan to your radar because her name is about to be plastered everywhere.
“The verses unpick my craving for a real and continued experience, knowing that while it remains completely impossible – re-entering a more ‘normal’ way of life feels threatening without my people nearby to stick with and lean on.”
