New Single From Emma Edel - Why We Try

‘Why We Try’ releasing on October 21st 2021, showcases a different avenue of Emma Edel’s ever-evolving sound.

The playful, infectious pop song, written at the beginning of 2020, discusses craving someone’s presence over anything materialistic or superficial.

It explores the disagreements that can arise between two people that have different love languages, while discussing the reasons ‘why’
you ‘try’ without forcing it.

The Chill Pop Track opens with a nostalgic-like sound bed that is quickly greeted by Edel’s upfront dream-like vocals.

The laid-back track blends lavish guitar progressions, modern synths, thick basslines and a simple retro-like drum beat.

The track is balanced by Edel’s conversational layered vocals that develop throughout the track, which feels much more personal than her previous releases.

Why We Try’s catchy hook flourishes as the song progresses and is complimented by Edel’s honest songwriting, her crisp sleek vocals
and the songs refreshing production.

Produced remotely with Alex O' Keeffe over Zoom at the beginning of this year, Emma then recorded her vocals in studio with Adam Shanahan once lockdown lifted:

‘The guys brought my song to life, from the basic demo I sent Alex, to this full production.

The final sound really highlights the story behind the song and it has become a lot more personal.’
