3Jane, by the artist’s own admission, is the lyrical centre-piece of new album The Future’s Void, to be released on April 7th through City Slang.
“Did you know Facebook just bought the company that makes the Oculus Rift? The VR headset I am wearing on the cover of The Future’s Void? People ask me about themes of paranoia on the record but obviously I am not the only one with dystopian dreams of our plugged-in future.” writes EMA, introducing the latest song from her new album on her blog today.
“No one was really ever that mean to me on the internet. I never had that ‘thing’ that happens when you wake up one morning and somehow your life is ruined because a mortifying picture goes viral or a ‘funny’ tweet becomes horribly misread. Sure, there were bitchy things in the comments of videos, but organized trolls never unleashed a wave of death threats on me, and only a few people suggested that I kill myself.”
An inward exploration of human relationships both thematically and musically, The Future’s Void meditates on universal themes of how we interact with the wider world and how that interaction is increasingly modified by technology.
Erika M. Anderson first graced the limelight under the guise of EMA in May 2011, when debut album Past Life Martyred Saints was released to a multitude of acclaim. EMA continues to evoke a unique and ambitious sound that saw her rightfully recognised as one of the most singular artists to emerge in 2011, and is likely to catapult her back into the public consciousness once again in 2014.
