Emma Jonietz is a 21 year old self taught multi-instrumentalist, singer, song writer, producer, and engineer. When she’s not in the studio or teaching herself a new instrument, this amazing soul is totally talented. “Like mine” by “Emma Jonietz” is the freshly released track.
What’s particularly great about this one is that the music really brings out a whole new edge and passion in the singer’s leading vocal performance. There are some real moments of grit and power, which is wonderful to hear. The melody in this track is really well integrated among the music; it brings out the best in the singer’s vocal performance, but it also really effectively ties together all the separate elements of the song – so the result is that every instrument, every riff, every lyric; it all drives the sound forward as a complete unit, making this a genuinely memorable track.
The music itself is fantastic, the superb character that comes through from this particular fusion of instruments and elements is undeniably quite striking. The organic soundscape is a brilliant touch, as is the continuous softness of that lightly finger-picked guitar part, as is the addition of the female vocal for those verses. The whole way in which this song has been crafted is outstanding. When you witness the track, It’s almost like you’re witnessing some intense piece of theater – the imagery and the ideas conjured up by the music and the very specific lines used in the verses are intense. The song has the effect of feeling like far more than a piece of video, and that’s a pretty incredible thing to experience.
It’s a beautiful piece of music that really requires you to take the time out to just sit back and experience it. The accompanying video enhances the effects superbly, with its equally natural simplicity, a slightly jarred reality expressed through minimal visual effects – as a complete piece of art it’s an incredibly well crafted release. There are certain lines within the writing that will stop you in your tracks a little, but the cleverness of the musicality is something that won’t allow you to linger there for too long.
