Emmeline has unveiled a new video for her track ‘Dust’, featuring Kojey Radical.
The visual follows the release of her EP ‘Small-Town Girls and Soft Summer Nights’.
Emmeline explains: ‘In the video I take on both forms of persona I inhabit in the track -a bold/brash rap spirit dominating the stage, and a golden muse, perched upon a step ladder. It perfectly captures the moods of playful performance and a legacy of life on the stage, with a youthful and cheeky element.”
Discussing the song, Emmeline continues, “We wanted to make a song that was bold and playful, and that captured the spirit of the EP, with themes of theatricality and the legacy of a life on the stage.
“We used musical nods to Peter Pan and Frank Sinatra, whilst I wrote with references to Shakespeare and classic Hollywood; it’s a song about ageing and wish fulfilment, and how great art rarely fades to dust. When Kojey came into the studio to hear what we had been making, he blessed us by gracing the concept with his own meditations on performativity. The end result was beyond our wildest dreams of how fittingly he could inhabit our world with his own lyrical and vocal prowess.”
