Emmi – 60 Minutes

Among the many beautiful female pop voices emerged this year, we can’t help but include London-via-Perth singer Emmi. Her strong, colorful voice matches perfectly with the path that her solo career has taken, namely to write soaring and catchy pop songs, in the wake of acts such as Lianne La Havas or Lorde. The funny story behind her latest single, 60 Minutes, is that it was actually written in only 60 minutes, after accepting a challenge on it during a recording session.¬†Nonetheless, she was capable to drop an excellent pop jam.

The song comes with this statement: “60 Minutes tells the story of the final hour of a relationship. The man has fallen out of love with the girl and he is leaving. She has a secret she is desperate to tell him but she selflessly chooses not to tell it in order to allow him his freedom. It’s about loving someone enough to let them go, no matter what that means for you.
