emie nathan - upstream

Making exceptional use of the track's space, emie nathan returns with her chilling new single upstream. Set amongst its darkened pop nuances is a realisation of hope as subdued basslines give way to emie's autotuned vocals and whimpering synth pad textures. Speaking about upstream, she explains “upstream is a reflection of an incredibly polarised mindset I found myself in at the end of 2020. Within the space of 48 hours, I experienced skyrocketing personal highs and plummeting lows. I had a birthday where I turned 24 years old, received news of my Platoon deal and then found out I had lost a family member who I was unable to see in person for the entire year. Going through the sheer emotional rollercoaster of my achievements, celebrations and relief to the crashing and deeply saddening news of loss, I really struggled to know how and what to feel. And even, what was okay to feel. It was quite frankly, one of the best and worst moments of my career to date. Upstream describes the internal battle I had with myself, reckoning with the spectrum of deep seated emotions and searching for a guiltless equilibrium in the depths of grief.” Take a listen for yourselves below.
