Emerson Star: Great Escaper

emerson-starEmerson star is a Los Angeles quintet producing harmony-heavy indie rock tunes. However, they aren’t afraid to incorporate different sounds such as folk, classic rock, intricate bass lines, or complicated melodies. Their most recent EP had the aim to explore the youth of today and the chaos of their world. The title track, “Great Escaper,” listens like a psychedelic soup consisting of a blended three part melody, fuzzy guitar riffs, and heavy bass lines. “La Dolce Vita” and “What I Wanted” bring in more classic and folk rock backgrounds while maintaining their signature vocals. Emerson Star has the feel of a band on the rise due to their unique sound and the Great Escaper EP showcases their potential.
