Since my fawning of former-Standard Fare leader Emma Kupa never seems to dissipate, I’ve got to promote the announcement of her new mini-album for Wiaiwya. It’s not like she’s kept silent since her former act called it a day; she’s in Mammoth Penguins and she did that great single with Darren Hayman that made our year end list, but now she looks to go out on her own, albeit for a bit. Her approach in the song below shows some slight changes, with a more subdued folk approach and a change to the subject matter (turning from love to family). I love the strength of her voice too. The little album will be available in the Spring, but for now, just enjoy this dreamy track.
My obsession with Emma Kupa and everything she does continues. After moving on from Standard Fare, she’s kept herself rather busy, adding another new band to her resume: Mammoth Penguins. This new act has Emma and the group placing down crunchy guitar licks that are pretty catchy when matched with her perfect voice. I find it hard to believe that people aren’t going to love these new tunes (of which there are 3). I’m glad she hasn’t put down her axe, as I can’t ever seem to get enough of her voice. We’ll keep you posted as more news comes about the group and a possible release, but for now you can’t deny the joy of this track.
