Bristol based pop noir artist Emily Breeze returns with new album ‘Rapture’. Written and recorded in her 40th year on planet earth, the songs are a poignant and humorous take on how it feels to grow old disgracefully in an increasingly weird world. She describes the album as “a collection of coming-of (middle) age stories which celebrate flamboyant failure, excess and acceptance. “I was receiving advice from music industry types to try and hide my age as if it was a dirty secret like an S.T.D or a disgraced royal, so I decided to do the exact opposite”. This may have been a wise decision as single “Confessions Of An Ageing Party Girl'' received airplay from Lauren Laverne, Don Letts and Tom Robinson (BBC Radio 6) who commented “The UK’s 21st century answer to Patti Smith”. Second single “Ordinary Life” spent four weeks on the BBC Radio 6 Playlist seeing multiple plays from Amy Lame, Chris Hawkins, Steve Lamaq and Craig Charles who described the song as “an anthem” and invited Emily to do an interview as a special guest on the show. Emily has also found a fan in the A list actor Robert Carlyle who has shared both singles and commented “Emily Breeze IS talent...Love her”.
