Bristol-based noir pop artist Emily Breeze returns with her late 70’s CBGB’S inspired new wave anthem ‘The Bell’, taken from her upcoming album ‘Rapture’.

The album’s first single ‘Confessions of an Ageing Party Girl’ received airplay from Lauren Laverne, Don Letts and Tom Robinson (BBC Radio 6) who described Emily as “The UK’s 21st-century answer to Patti Smith performing deeply personal poetry over grooving post-punk rock n roll”. Her latest single ‘Ordinary Life’ enjoyed a fourth week on the BBC Radio 6 playlist after being championed by Craig Charles who invited Emily to do an on-air interview and described the song as “An anthem”.

Reflecting on her upcoming single ‘The Bell’, Emily says it’s “a love song to nights spent in the local pub where you swing by for a quick pint after work. You are probably meeting a friend who is having a crisis, just one quick pint and then straight home. Your first glass is empty just as the conversation is getting to the important part but it’s fine, two pints on a work night is totally fine. Crisis friend leaves to put the kids to bed and just as you are putting your jacket on, in walks an old mate who you haven’t seen for ages. Go on then, just a half, oh alright yeah a pint, you have a lot to catch up on. You crack jokes and reminisce in the sepia glow of the golden hour and it is fun. Real actual fun. You talk of good times and desperate times, you’re getting sentimental now, this is some grade A lager fuelled nostalgia. You stop counting drinks as it’s just started raining and somehow everyone you have ever known and loved is here. A Little Richard song comes on the stereo and you declare that soul and rock n roll are the highest forms of art. You seem to be making a speech and enter a heated debate with that weird guy who always sits at the bar as the quiet voice inside telling you to go home surrenders completely to the pub, the conversation, the good tunes, the cold beer and the old friends. F**k it tomorrows gonna be alright.”

The Bell is the third single from Emily’s upcoming solo album Rapture which she describes as “A collection of coming-of (middle) age stories which celebrate flamboyant failure, excess and acceptance”. Recorded at Rockfield Studios with all-star players Rob Norbury (lead guitar), Andy Sutor (drums), Graham Dalzell (bass) and Helen Stanley (synth/keys) and produced by Stew Jackson (Massive Attack).

Emily released her first solo album The Penny Arcade in 2010 garnering critical acclaim including album of the year in Americana U.K and support from BBC Radio 6 which resulted in Emily being described as “The love child of P.J Harvey and Johnny Cash” in The Sunday Times followed by performances at Glastonbury Festival, a headline slot at Bristol Festival and U.K and European tour dates. Emily then went on to form psychedelic post-punk band Candy Darling and released two double A-side seven-inch singles “Money” and “Going Straight” which were supported by BBC Intro, The NME, and Louder Than War.

2019 saw the release of Emily’s second solo album Rituals produced by Stew Jackson (Massive Attack) which also received positive reviews in national press (Mojo, Irish Times) and airplay from BBC Intro in the West, XFM and BBC Radio 6.
