The third single from Emily Breeze’s forthcoming album Rituals is a shimmering indie pop anthem entitled “Work”. The glossy sonic exterior and radio friendly chorus act as a foil for the ice cold cynicism and pitch black humour of the lyrics which were inspired by Patrick Bateman (American Psycho) and Emily’s own experiences of hauling herself out of bed every morning to make a pointless profit for somebody else.
first two singles “Limousines” and “Ego Death” received airplay from Radio X,
BBC Introducing in the West, Tom Robinson (BBC Radio 6) and led to Emily being
described as “Nancy Sinatra on Ketamine” (Louder than War) and “a 21st Century
Patti Smith” (Tom Robinson BBC Radio 6).
by Bristol luminary Stew Jackson writer, producer for Massive Attack, who has
also worked with Tom Waits, Patti Smith and Nick Cave and performed by Emily’s
Stellar Band of Rob Norbury (lead guitar), Andy Sutor (drums), Graham Dalzell
(bass) and Duncan Fleming (keys/synth), “Work” is the soundtrack to the world
gradually falling apart in an absurd state of late capitalism, insurmountable
admin, antidepressants and unreachable targets.
