We first introduced you to British talent Emilia Tarrant back in February via one of our On The Record interviews following the release of her emotive single ‘Honeymoon Phase’. We were warmed by the sincerity of how Emilia approaches songwriting and that ability only seems to go from strength-to-strength, at least that’s what we can tell from her newest release ‘Here You Are, Again’. On the surface, you might think that this newer track is another post-breakup song, but it’s really not and here the young songwriter explains why:
“‘Here You Are, Again’ is a song brought on from the drop of my mental state after just entering the second lockdown of last year. After experiencing this collapse in emotion multiple times (one day feeling content, and the next, real sadness) I realised that mental health comes and goes as it pleases. It’s really tiring, and something I had hoped wouldn’t last forever, hence the lyric: ‘maybe I was a lil naive to believe that it would be that easy’. Whether it is mental health, a complicated relationship, or the recent ups and downs of the pandemic, I feel the song is relatable to anyone who struggles with the repetitive nature of life.”
If you been struck by a loss of identity throughout the ongoing pandemic, then surely Emilia‘s honest account against a luscious backdrop of piano, soft percussion and simple strings will connect with you. And if you’re not experiencing that, then ‘Here You Are, Again’ can be appreciated for its standalone beauty.
