Matt Emery Releases New EP 'Spotlight Series: Cello'

Matt Emery's latest EP 'Spotlight Series: Cello' was released today, Friday 9th April 2021 through Injazera Records. The EP is part of a planned series concentrating on one instrument at a time, the first focusing on the Cello, with the six tracks featured performed by Fraser Bowles.

'Characteristically for Emery’s music, the overarching theme is storytelling - a distinct, defined narrative running as an unbroken thread throughout the record. The music here acts as a tense and dark soundtrack, its story that of a samurai warrior heading into battle.

"Opener 'Anxiety Mist' is made up of fifteen individually perfromed lines, its core revolving around a rising glissando figure, eventually accompanied with lush building harmonies and punctuated by stabs and erratic higher melodies that paint the picture of warriors waiting in line amid the mist, a thunderous charge into battle forebodingly imminent".


London/Surrey based composer Emery’s debut album 'Empire’ was released on Injazero Records in 2017 to widespread acclaim, receiving praise from BBC Radio 1, Radio 6, KEXP, Radio X , XLR8R, Clash Mag, self-titled and The Ransom Note. After selling out his debut headline show at St Pancras Old Church, further performances followed at The Southbank Centre’s Queen Elizabeth Hall, Union Chapel and Neue! Step Festival in Istanbul, with Nils Frahm and Peter Broderick. His music has been heard by millions through its usage in film and television'.
