“My heart is a wildfire,” Emma Louise sings on Colours, and by the time you’ve been swept up by the emotional storms of her second album, you know how true that is. On "Supercry", the Brisbane songwriter holds nothing back: all the aches and desires of a gifted songwriter moving into adulthood are laid bare. Yet even with all the successes that came her way after the release of 2013 debut album vs Head vs Heart, Supercry is the second album that might never have been made. A stunning 2011 debut EP, Full Hearts and Empty Rooms, announced Emma Louise on the national stage as a rare kind of talent, one who creates songs with a resonance far beyond the instant sugar hit of so much pop music. Once you hear tunes as intensely evocative as Illuminate, from the new album, or Jungle from Full Hearts, you don’t forget them.
Emma loves to be involved in every aspect of her career, from providing original paintings for her cover art to designing on-stage outfits, but she knows that her songwriting is the foundation for it all. “Writing songs is what I am best at. I can’t do that unless I am by myself so I spend a lot of time alone, which is probably why it was hard for me working with other people at first. With the first album I was very rigid, fighting for control. With this one I loosened up so much; it felt so natural and honest.”.
