Emmy The Great - Swimming Pool

In the three and a half years since Ms Moss last crossed our path she's relocated many times and shifted not just her style - ambient atmospherics, rippling keys, atmospheric rhythms, plenty of space, no immediately noticeable acoustic guitar, not as much like Lana Del Rey as you might be thinking from title and description - but her very tone of voice for much of the time. Tom Fleming of Wild Beasts pops in for very obviously Tom Fleming-like backing vocals. A proper old-school grower, and given this is the lead track from an EP, merely titled S, out January 26th on new home Bella Union it's intriguing to see where this is going to end up.
