Today's a tense one in terms of what the future might hold, but Emily Edrosa gives us something tangibly super cool to look forward to with an album launch event for her debut solo album Another Wave Is Coming, happening at Tāmaki Makaurau's The Wine Cellar on 20th November. Recipient of the 2017 Taite Music Prize for Street Chant's second album Hauora, Edrosa's new record was mixed by producer John Agnello (Kurt Vile, Sonic Youth, Waxahatchee) and is out this month via her own imprint PSL Sound, and in the US courtesy of Park The Van. Back in Aotearoa following a lengthy stay in LA, Edrosa will be joined at her release show by full live band, with supports yet to be revealed. We reckon this one will pack out, we strongly advise you grab tickets while you can...

Press release:

Emily achieved acclaim as the songwriter and frontwoman for the multiple-award-winning power-pop trio Street Chant, with the band’s final release Hauora (Flying Nun Records, 2016) winning New Zealand’s prestigious Taite Music Prize in 2017. Leaving behind a friendly music scene and a fierce reputation, Emily moved to Los Angeles in 2016 to start over in a country that seemed in its death throes.

After six months spent in Covid-induced isolation lockdown, in mid-2020 Emily made the decision to return home. Again based in Auckland, she's preparing to release NCEA, the third single from her debut solo album Another Wave is Coming and her first since her return to Tāmaki Makaurau. Emily worked with Auckland based director/editor Anastasia Doniants on the video, which premiered on UK music site Clash Magazine who described it as "an undiluted vision of coy DIY guitar pop that is blunt yet personable in its approach". Watch the video here.

Another Wave is Coming is the culmination of several years of meticulous work spanning two sides of the globe, and represents an ambitious leap forward for the Emily Edrosa sound. Emily demoed everything down to the drum parts before enlisting assistance from a cast including local favourites Alex Freer (Tiny Ruins) and Liz Stokes (The Beths) to fully realise her vision for the record. Mixed by legendary producer John Agnello (Kurt Vile, Sonic Youth, Waxahatchee) and finished by Emily in her home studio, the record is a portrait of life as a hyper-aware stranger in dreamlike and hostile territory.

The album will be released locally by PSL Sound and globally by American label Park The Van Records on November 20th, with Emily playing a headline show (with full band) at Auckland's Wine Cellar to commemorate the occasion.
