“September” is the newest, haunting and emotive new single from Winchester (UK) based singer-songwriter, Emilia Tarrant. With the help of songwriter Archie Faulks and producer Luke Potashnick, Emilia Tarrant has been able to create an acoustic pop ballad that’s timeless yet modern, with lyrics that are both deeply personal and widely relatable.
“September has to be my favourite song from my debut Honeymoon Phase EP. I wrote it with the lovely Archie Faulks back in September (of course) last year, during a time when I was quite reflective on 2020 and the end of summer. I feel September is a month of ‘drawing the curtains’ as autumn arrives, which can be quite tough, and ‘tender’ for some. We took lyrical inspiration from the events of the month, my favourites having to be ‘berries are bitter, the swallows have flown’. I loved exploring this sort of lyricism with Archie, as well as picking up it’s pace with producer Luke Potashnick (Gabrielle Aplin) in the studio. As the final track of the EP, we wanted its production to be quite ethereal; a calming way to encapsulate and reflect on the EP as a collection of thoughts.”
