ARTIST OF THE WEEK: No.478 - Esme Emerson

After establishing themselves with a string of independently released efforts in recent years, British-Chinese sibling duo Esme and Emerson Lee-Scott aka Esme Emerson have now announced their signing to Communion Records with their woozy new single 'Please'.

Cultivating more of that rich and alluring indie-pop aesthetic they are known for, 'Please' makes for a beautifully sweet and tender listen. With its warm and inviting textures, sweeping atmosphere, and mesmerising vocals layered throughout, they are already sounding like one of the more impactful names on the rise right now.

Speaking about the new offering, Esme said, “‘Please’ is about young, queer love. It’s about all the tentative moments and shame that comes with something so confusing yet simple. It’s about feeling unsure and wrong, angry and gentle. It’s about such a pure and sweet emotion, but how that feeling can sit so sickly and rotten in your gut.”

Esme Emerson will release their new EP later this year. Have a listen to 'Please' in the player below.
