Here at The Honey POP, we are obsessed with Emily Weisband. She is the epitome of the title ‘Songwriter.’ But it doesn’t stop there! She also has the voice of an angel.
When you look at her discography, specifically songs like ‘Dumber’ and ‘You’re Cool,’ you can tell why we truly believe Emily is one of the few that could teach a masterclass on her craft.
With Emily’s newest song ‘New Salt’ she continues to prove her genius. We can’t imagine listening to one of Emily’s songs and not feeling like she ripped a page out of our diary. Her lyrics just hit differently. They are so pointed and personal but relatable at the same time. “Why do pretty words make it so hard to remember you’re selfish?” is such a telling line. This song was written about the most toxic relationship. So many of us have that person that creeps back into our lives, and the good things overshadow why you let them go in the first place until those bad things take center stage again.
Once again, Emily delivers on the visuals. This song is vulnerable and raw, and it’s only right the video would follow suit. The use of lighting, especially the golden hour rays, is just stunning. Emily is excellent at emoting with her facial expressions and this video proves that. Having it just be her in the video was a genius choice, she shines bright enough and doesn’t need a co-star to make a perfect video.
But if you’ll excuse us, we’re going to go cry to ‘New Salt’ for the next week.
