Emma Bradley’s ‘Square One’ Is A Moving Return

It's about the struggle to let go...

Rising songwriter Emma Bradley has shared new song ‘Square One’.

The artist is only 23 years old, yet carries herself with real grace and dignity. Displaying a maturity beyond her tender years, she caught attention with recent soul-baring queer pop anthem ‘Renew Me’.

The follow-up is out now on tmwrk, and ‘Square One’ finds Emma Bradley pouring her soul into each note. An emotive, tender offering, the sparsity of the arrangement seems to heighten the quiet intensity of her vocal, continually moving forwards.

Emma Bradley comments…

“’Square One’ is about struggling to let go of people that you have loved. We wrote the song about a memory box that I keep under my bed. It’s slightly mad but I keep little things that people have left behind to help me remember them. Sort of like a journal but in box form? It’s definitely slightly crazy haha.”

“I’ve always found it so hard to let go of people, even if they have hurt me and I know I need to. The song is about remembering and ruminating over those feelings. It’s also just about feeling stuck and hung up on someone when you know you need to move on but you don’t know how to.”

Tune in now.
