The track’s uneasy marriage of romance and horror makes for something uniquely engaging.

Immediately on ‘Afterlife’, you can feel the dark and ominous tone bleeding out of the sound, as it creeps up on you and draws you in to its supernatural world. The latest release from Emmrose¬†excels in its ability to feel as uniquely rousing and satisfying as it does macabre, creating an uneasy middle-ground that sticks out as a wonderfully memorable experience.

From toxic relationships to supernatural romances, the track blurs the line between fantasy and reality and this uneasy marriage creates a dynamic that feels unlike anything else on either side of the fence. A really interesting and often moving piece of work.
