Emmeline has shared a nostalgic new single ‘Small-Town Girl’.

It is the second offering from her upcoming EP ‘Small-Town Girls and Soft Summer Nights’, which is due to arrive on 28th July via 70Hz.

The track reflects on her childhood home in Yorkshire, and tells stories of games and countless nights spent by the beach.

Emmeline explains: “My second EP, ‘Small-Town Girls and Soft Summer Nights’ is located firmly in the Yorkshire hillsides – that place of my adolescence and fevered dreaming. Connecting the tracks is a younger version of myself and the people, films, books, bandstands and small rivers that took hold of my imagination then, and have yet to leave. Throughout this body of work, I document my long-term fascination with American suburbia, and how it intrigued my British instincts; I become different characters and scenarios in which I longed to play-pretend; I luxuriate in a series of vignettes that are as equally fantastical as they are theatrical. This EP is about the juxtaposition of the local and the dream-world, the intimate and the performative, and the character and the caricature. It is a fabled love letter to growing up, and for seeing your home with clarity only after having left.”

She will give her debut headline performance at The Last Word Festival at London’s Roundhouse on 15th June.
