“Dancing with a Thief” is the new hauntingly gripping single by indie-pop artist Emily James. The 19-year old singer/songwriter releases the self-written, self-produced stripped-back song today. The New York native who’s since moved to Los Angeles, says this about the song:
“I really wanted to show the vulnerability as well as the fear, temptation, and uncertainty that comes with falling into a reckless relationship.”
Deriving influences from various styles, Emily started writing songs at just 10 years old. Fast forward to February 2018, when she released her 12-track, Ryan Hadlock-produced, debut album, Til the Morning, we can see a huge artistic leap.The musician had, in fact, already dropped her self-titled debut EP in 2016. Listen to “Dancing with a Thief”.
