“Forever and After”, the next track to be unveiled from Bedfordshire singer-songwriter Terry Emm’s third album ‘Starlight’, is a summery slice of English jangly guitar-pop, with a rousing ‘seize the day’ sentiment. The track is the next single from Terry Emm’s highly anticipated third album ‘Starlight’ and it single follows an online video release of album track ‘Loved And Never Lost’ which garnered wuite the response both online and on the radio.
The album’s title track ‘Starlight’ was also unveiled recently online to gain wide attention all over the blogosphere including ‘Track Of The Day’ features on the taste-making ‘For Folks Sake’ blog, Shout 4 Music and Indie London. ‘Forever And After’, however breaks out of the pastoral alt-folk stylings of these two tracks with an uplifting guitar-pop urgency and big harmonies. Striking a lyrical note of optimism for what may lie ahead, the warm melodic spring in the step of ‘Forever and After’ demonstrates that Emm possesses a natural pop instinct.
‘Forever and After’, conjures Emm’s youth growing up in the 90’s, listening to Brit-pop with it’s Del Amitrir and Boo Radley style bright harmonies and sparkly guitar sound and sees him looking back into the haze and naivety of youth to reminisce about young love and lost summers. The lyrics deal with dreaming of success letting go, with a confident realization that it takes less than we think to ‘be what you like’, as in the main chorus line. At only 26 and playing support shows with current Radio 2 buzz act Emma Stevens and upcoming dates coming with folk artisans The Moulettes and US bluesman Harry Manx, Emm looks set to taste more of the success he was dreaming of in youth.
“Starlight” is set to be released August 11th 2014.
