‘First Love’ by Emmy the Great

Handcrafted anti-folk pop

'First Love' by Emmy the Great

First Love‘ is Emmy the Great’s first album and it’s good stuff. The lyrics are the best bit, laced with honesty and irony. The backing music is analogue and minimal, allowing her voice to stay centre-stage. It’s modern anti-folk pop done with surprising freshness.

Choose singers like this—with clearly pronounced words and interesting lyrics—if you want to practice your English by listening to music.
