EMA is set to release her politically-charged, alt-rock experiment, Exile In the Outer Ring, later this month. Today she has shared the album’s new and fourth single, “Blood and Chalk”. The track is a much quieter affair compared to what we’ve heard from the album so far. For the most part, we’re treated to sombre piano, drum echoes, and EMA’s low-key sense of melodicism that harkens back to her debut album, Past Life Martyred Saints. That is until noise elements and guitar feedback gently glide through the background. Give it a listen below and get hyped for Exile In the Outer Ring.
Exile In the Outer Ring is out 8/25 on City Slang.
