If you’re always on the lookout for Pop which packs a pensive punch, you’ll strike emotive gold with up and coming artist emmanuelle sasson’s debut album “Smoke&Mirrors”.
Whilst each track is as delectably raw as the last, there’s no better introduction to the artist’s pioneeringly plaintive sound than “Note to Self”.
With their contemporary songwriting approach in Note to Self, you’ll get much more than your average ballad. Alongside the essential ballad components such as momentous semi-orchestral swells and melancholic minor-key piano melodies, you’ll find emmanuelle sasson’s discernible vocal distinction. His ability to pour soul into the vocal projections is unparalleled. Paired with the artist’s candidly fraught lyricism and their tendency to keep you in bitter-sweet anticipation with the progressions, Note to Self hits incredibly hard while keeping the tempo poised and refined.
You can check out Note to Self along with the rest of emmanuelle sasson’s 2019 album for yourselves by heading over to Spotify.
