Emi Wes—an up-and-coming Danish musician—is ready to release her debut single, “Issues.” The track is driven by a slow, romantic piano and poetic introspection. Working with writer and producer Robin Hannibal, Wes was able to bring her visions to life.
“Over the years, these have been the lines of my life. It’s really about not being frightened of appearing vulnerable.” Wes says. “The instrumentals, the strings, and Robin’s chords just gave me the words to a feeling I had in me. I guess it was also important for me to address that I have issues too, because we all do. Sometimes saying it loud makes it more OK. For me it’s a sign of strength being able to say the less pretty out loud.”
Hear “Issues” below, and anticipate the song hitting streaming on Friday.
