LA songwriter Emma Ruth Rundle is known under many guises – Marriages, perhaps her most well-known offering, creates haunting soundscapes deeply resonant with the ethereal realm.
Alone, Emma bypasses the ethereal for the utterly devastating truth of the present moment. The stark reality of an emotional breakdown of a relationship echoed plainly in her clean vocals, unprotected by echo based effects or reverb.
The particularly piquant home truths that are laid bare in ‘Marked for Death’ are enhanced with muted acoustic and sliding guitars. And the emergence of a cello that soars underneath perpetuates a strong nostalgia, hinting at a bygone time lost to the clutches of the “real world”.
Marked for Death is a strong debut single from Emma’s third solo offering.
