"An eclectic bedroom-pop single at its core,“Castles” showcases the unique vision Lind has as a songwriter, as well as the versatility in her capabilities as a vocalist." - Forbes
Singer-songwriter and actress Emily Lind makes a statement with the release of her debut single, "Castles." The single was premiered with Forbes, praising, "Spanning the spectrum from dark indie-pop to an almost alternative hip-hop sound, Lind’s inaugural outing as an artist is both intriguing and addictive." "Castles," produced with Jerry Powell (producer for A$AP Rocky, Kanye, Ho99o9) and KoOoLkOjAk (producer for Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj, Kesha) shows her prowess as a songwriter and performer. Describing the single, Emily says, "'Castles' is a song about letting go of the pressure we (as humans) tend to put on ourselves. As a musician I use music as an outlet. Therefore I find myself writing the most at times of sadness, and hardships. Personally, I feel that we all like to focus too much on the bad shit going on, that we then, muddy all the good things in the process. I wrote this track because I needed to hear it. I needed someone to say that in life, issues will inevitably arise. Though, we can’t stop them from doing so, we can always change how we choose to perceive them. Accept the bad stuff, learn from it, and then LET IT GO. This song is for this listener. Label it with your name. Make it whatever you need to hear. This song is for you.” In the same month of the release of her debut single is the release of blockbuster Doctor Sleep which Emily stars in. She plays the iconic Stephen King character, Snakebite Andi. The film has already been a success, amassing over $53 million during its opening weekend. With the release of the single, Lind also announces an upcoming album, set to be released in February 2020. With more music on the way Lind is an artist to keep your eyes on as a rapidly rising singer-songwriter.
Emily's BIO: Emily Lind’s natural grace and vulnerable songwriting radiate a level of authenticity one might not expect from a famous young actress who’s acted alongside the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio, Juliette Lewis, Keanu Reeves, and has even been directed by Clint Eastwood and Gaspar Noe. It’s as if she can step right off the silver screen into her true self: a refreshingly thoughtful and expressive poet, guitarist and singer-songwriter. Perhaps it’s because Emily never expected to pursue music professionally the way she’d pursued acting, since childhood her songs and poems had always been kept to herself so as to never lose her passion for writing. Emily’s love of artists like Leonard Cohen, Nico, Bob Dylan, Elliot Smith, Bon Iver, and Kendrick Lamar shine through her songs, even though she insists her music sounds like none of them. Her mantra both in song-writing and in life is “flow not force,” and after a series of what felt like forced efforts, she found her producer dream team and new best friends in KoOoLkOjAk and Tizhimself. Having worked with the likes of Kanye West, ASAP Rocky, Ho99o9, and Dojacat to name a few, their highly refined hip-hop chops take the form of wild beats and soundscapes that pour through Emily’s moody, and at times wonderfully weird songs. Her debut single “Castles” is the first track to be revealed off the upcoming LP they made together. “My main goal is to create a world where people can go, to feel a little less alone,” she says about the EP. “Art in any form is perceived by each person differently, and to me that is the beauty of creating in general. The truth is when you take away all of the small differences that each human possesses, we are all the same. We all want to feel understood, and having the outlet to do that is such a huge responsibility that I don’t take lightly. I want the music I put out to be whatever the listener needs it to be.” Far from being a safe record, the LP is a series of successful musical experiments that capture the true essence of Emily Lind.
