Her alluring charm lies in her whimsical compositions, but she’ll make you feel all the feels with her lyrics.
– THE PERMANENT RAIN PRESS | READ FULL REVIEW HERE
Listen closely to the EP and you will find hints of Heatmiser, Sara Bareilles, and Ingrid Michaelson, but Willolux maintains a youthful folk-pop style. There is a subtle theatricality to Emmott’s songwriting, which is both delicate and intimate in its sound and lyrical content.

Tragende Soundebenen und wunderschönes, unaufgeregtes Songwriting. So etwas machen nur Musiker, die es nicht nötig haben, ihre Musik hinter Bombast und aufwändigen Produktionen zu verstecken.

SONG REVIEW – “Modern Day Maestro”
A master blender of nostalgic folk and bedroom dream-pop.
– SANTA ROSA RECORDS | READ FULL REVIEW HERE
A sublime slice of folk-pop. The music is radiant and immersive, echoing Basia Bulat’s reinvention of ’70s-era folk-pop. Her voice is lavishing, where the listener is left dangling to every word she sings.

I love me some sardonic and this has got it in spades as well as shimmering chord that should make your heart go pitter patter. The vocals are classic indie girl, Aimee Mann so there’s an effortless couldn’t give a fuck attitude at work.

With the sonic melodies of the 90’s rock and a nostalgic twist of modern 60’s, Emmott explores the social media generation and our perceived self versus others and the strange and obscene narratives we create.

This track, “Modern Day Maestro” packs in some fine songwriting, telling a tale of young-adulthood in our current age of “dying to know who’s looking at you.” Emmott’s vocals are smoky and rich, but when she hits the notes on the chorus, you’ll be singing right alongside her.

– RIDE THE TEMPO | READ FULL REVIEW HERE
Recalls the soaring sensibilities of Neko Case and Regina Spektor, and particularly their mixture of folk and rock with dreamy pop melodies and a bit of vintage pop charm… Emmott appears to pack a sound wherein wide-spreading recognition is imminent.
