Emily Edrosa by Keva Rands

Emily Edrosa by Keva Rands

In the long wait between the first album by Auckland trio Street Chant and the second Street Chant album (which I’m hoping is ‘near’), guitarist/ vocalist Emily Edrosa has been playing solo shows and assembling the self-titled Emily Edrosa EP via DIY recording and cool/ distressed/ inventive samples/ loops/ percussion). It’s great stuff too.

Dragged outside of the power-trio punk snarl assault of Street Chant Emily’s song-writing reveals a dark, bruised introversion expressing itself with wry self-deprecating gallows humour. ‘The Corner of the Party’ confronts, but does so with so much style.

Try another great song from the EP –  ‘Underground’ – a hypnotic standout from Emily’s live solo sets.
