Emily Breeze – Confessions of an Ageing Party
Girl (Sugar Shack Records)

Release Date: 29th October 2020

I am still a little dumfounded as to how Bristol’s Emily Breeze isn’t more of an icon yet but there’s still time and while she’s putting out tracks like this the odds are good. ‘Confessions of an Ageing Party Girl’ features Breeze’s typically deadpan spoken word delivery over dark guitars and Lynchian atmospherics. With a sense of Jarvis Cocker and the Human League meets the Long Blondes about it, this song really feels like it could have been born on the streets of Sheffield. Nevertheless, the line “nothing glitters when you’re gone” is dripping in sadness, regret and faded glamour but there’s a defiance about this as well and that’s what gives it the spirit and energy it needs. Gloriously dark, as always.
