Great North Road
Despite being classically trained in music, Los Angeles voice Emiko gave up her traditional path at the age of twelve in favour of making pop. Now with a glittering career behind her that's growing all the time, we're treated to another one of her emphatic compositions. Having been featured in Billboard Magazine, Music Connection, and FM Sound, plus attaining several US number one slots for her previous singles, Alternative Fruit is immensely pleased to be asked to offer some words.
The music begins with a steady drum-beat. Slow and powerful bass thumps down as pianos start to dance in key. The penetrating tempo pins a verse line which builds across a handful of bars. Guitars then rumble in like thunder as the chorus opens like a passionflower. Distorted notes combine with piano tones and synthesiser sway to provide a funky and upbeat home for emotionally moving lyrics. The way Emiko sings demonstrates how much she feels the words, her imploring imagery fathoms in thick clouds of poetic intention. A travelling song, Great North Road builds up with gradual flow and progresses along a path of many turns.
