EMA DEBUT SINGLE ‘GREY SHIP’/’KIND HEART’

If you’re a fan of guitar noise, Erika M. Anderson (EMA) may already be familiar to you. A South Dakota native, she moved to LA when she was just 18. There she formed the duo Gowns with Ezra Buchla. Gowns’ 2007 album ‘Red State’ was an electronic folk and feedback drenched creation that left critics raving and bewildered.

In the wake of Gowns’ demise, EMA has struck out on her own. Her debut single is out on March 7th on Souterrain Transmissions (Zola Jesus, Marnie Stern, Ganglians) – the seven minute ‘Grey Ship’, backed with a glorious seventeen minute cover of the Robert Johnson blues staple, ‘Kind Hearted Woman’, where she claims to channel the entire history of rock and roll, from “birth to destruction”. Stand back people, lady making a grand statement, coming through…

‘Grey Ship’ has already been causing a rumbling in the underground after it leaked online last month:

“I love really long songs, really long pieces, and I wanted to see if I could make an engaging piece using primarily just voice and guitar,” EMA explains. “And I love the sound of guitar feedback. Tonal guitar feedback is one of my all-time favourite sounds.”

Her forthcoming debut solo album is titled ‘Past Life Martyred Saints’
