Emei‘s newest release, “Backtrack,” is short, sweet, and straight-to-the-punch. The broad opening, focused on her singular voice and a neatly-kept guitar, makes the impact of the chorus hit that much harder. Interwoven personal details paired with a wider-reaching message showcase how skillful her songwriting is. Instrumentally, the track doesn’t pull any punches either, and defying the expected direction causes your breath to catch at just the right moments. With one song, you may find yourself checking out the rest of her discography; I know I will be.
