An entrancing mix of chill and dance vibes, ‘Little Brown Cloud’ is the latest release from the band’s upcoming album Glasswork.
To describe their sound as indie rock does little justice to the huge wealth of sounds and influences this quintet play with. This new track combines robotic mumbles, a minimalist guitar melody and an array of other sonic wonders to create an otherworldly soundscape.
Speaking about the song, EMÆL shared more about its creation and meaning:
“‘Little Brown Cloud’ came to Michael and I when we were just hanging out. As the song developed, its carefree sound the meaning came to us. The song finds that the struggles of life are often inevitable, but it is how we face those challenges that truly shape us. ‘Little Brown Cloud’ is about moving life in the right direction, realizing the path taken, and appreciating the beauty along the way. As probably the most care-free sounding EMÆL song to date, it felt right for guitarist Michael Womack to take the lead vocal on this one. As the song ventures into stormier territory in the latter half I (Emmanuel Ventura-Cruess) return to the mic. This was a fun song for us because we really all collaborated together on its creation.”
We’re hitting follow on all of EMÆL’s pages so we don’t miss out on the release of their impending album, surely not one to be missed!
