Emmy Bryce

Emmy Bryce

Uplifting as it is, there are ghosts of childhood bike rides and sun-faded suburban scenes haunting the Polaroid-pop of Melbourne newcomer Emmy Bryce.
It could simply be that there are few Australian songwriters making meaningful yet wilfully light-filled music in 2012.
Emmy relocated to Melbourne to take advantage of gig opportunities. The move also gave Emmy, Maroudas and McCarthy the environment they needed to set about recording.
It's the reverence for classical pop forms created with less than common instrumentation and real but measured emotion that have made a vocal fan of indie-pop maestro and recent Triple J Hottest 100 poll-topper Gotye. Former Frente frontwoman and celebrated solo songwriter Angie Hart has become an unofficial mentor, no doubt also bonding with Emmy over her desire to seek out the positive in her lyrics. Contemporaries, should any need to be named, are found in Feist and Regina Spektor.
One of the highlight discoveries of Australian audiences in 2012.
