This enterprising 25-year-old captivates with a fabric of textures & melodies, enchanting vocals & tape distortions, silence & multi-layered instrumentation, melody & discord.

Strings, clarinet, flute, steel drum, bells & other instrumentation support Emily Cross’s enchanting vocals while allowing for dramatic silences to build like black holes.  Her lyrics conjure a long-lasting dark beauty that weave in with her music to create entrancing sonic landscapes. While the swells of ambient melody create a shaky, accumulative tonality reminiscent of julianna barwick, the structures of cross records’ compositions veer towards the amalgamation of song & sound on Julia holter’s ‘tragedy’. There is also something of grouper & tiny vipers’ astounding mirrorring collaboration in the complex, sinuous texture of the compositions. Devastating & spell bindingly beautiful.
