Sometimes it's best to just rush headlong into things.
Approaching their new EP, Emily & The Woods decided to just get on with things. Recording the material in a little under a week, it was a whirlwind of creativity with engineer and producer Greg Freeman assisting them throughout.
The focal point of the new material is the voice of Emily Woods, yet this is far from singer-songwriter fare. A fully developed band, each decision is taken collectively and this comes through in their music.
Soft, fluid writing matched to an urgent rhythmic kick, Emily & The Woods have already caught the attention of Gilles Peterson, Tom Ravenscroft and Lauren Laverne.
New EP 'Then We Collide' is out now, with Clash able to premiere the video for 'Helios'. Stylishly shot in black and white, it features a dance routine from Emily Woods as the song evolves around her.
Watch it now.
