Single Review: Emma Kelly – Drunk

By Orla Brady

Strength, power and confidence are three words which can be used to accurately describe singer-songwriter Emma Kelly’s music. She successfully fuses together a pop and RnB influenced sound, with intimate and personal lyrics – both of which provide her listeners with an insight into her personality, style and experiences.

Kelly’s new single ‘Drunk’ is no exception. It premiered on BBC Introducing: The South on the 4th of March as part of their International Women’s Day playlist, and Kelly has been present on a number of online live video streams during lockdown. She is due to host an Instagram takeover on the 29th of May as part of Lume Booking Agency’s #lockdownlive sessions.

‘Drunk’ begins with minimal musical accompaniment, which showcases Kelly’s striking vocal ability, and appears hauntingly mysterious. However, the style soon shifts into a punchy pop hit, with memorable lyrics and infectious beats. It is a track that will undoubtedly grip the attention of a crowd, when Kelly can eventually share it with a live audience, and signals a promising future for this talented, young songstress.
