Manchester Singer-Songwriter Susie Jones has stripped Indie Acoustic Folk right back to its roots with the quiescently powerful single “Emmeline”.
The instrumentals may be minimalistic, but that just leaves more room for the sonorous vocals to resonate within the soundscape.
Rather than constructing your average track following archetypal songwriting structures, Susie Jones utilises the power of improvisation to orchestrate a truly captivating aural experience.
Time may as well stand still while you are listening to Emmeline. It drips serenity whilst abstracting you from your own introspection, although your emotive responses will be well and truly present.
Emmeline is just one of the accordantly haunting singles which you’ll find on Susie Jones’ 2020 album “Not So Far Apart”. You can listen to it in full by heading over to Bandcamp now.
