On this, Emmy The Great’s third album, the London-based singer-songwriter explores issues of technology, desire, communication, self-care and distance with an ever more sophisticated manner.
It’s all in the romance of tracks like Algorithm, “I’ve got to find a place for the love I have within/Pumping through my heart like an algorithm,” and Swimming Pool, “Love is something that I’ve always thought I could never go inside/Now I’ve seen you here I don’t know how I even used to be alive”. Soft, beautiful and carefully crafted.
