MELANCHOLY BALLAD "WHAT DO I" FROM EMILY JAMES

April 26, 2020

 

NY Born/LA Based 21-year-old singer-songwriter, Emily James, releases her latest single, "what do i."

 

Here's a song that feels like it'd be great to cry to That being said however, it also brings elements of hope as if there is light at the end of a tunnel. The track conveys feelings of unresolved emotions and unanswered questions when imagining the moment you see a former love for the first time, post-breakup. In "what do i," James, along with collaborators Paris Carney and Mike Pappas, expresses these sentiments of apprehension through a passionate internal narrative. 

 

2020 brings us new music from James, with singles "bartender," "kissing boys," and now, "what do i," which offer heartfelt melodies and lyrics that read as entries from a diary. With over 1M streams on some of her Spotify singles, we look forward to her future releases.

 

The low harmonies are a nice touch, the song's minimal simplicity suits the concept and vocal tone well. Hear for yourself below.
