Emma Ragen – ‘Beautiful Days’
Hailing from San Diego, musician Emma Ragen has released the stunning EP ‘Beautiful Days’. It is an indie-pop release that strikes the hearts of its listeners.
The title track ‘Beautiful Days’ opens the release, and Ragen’s soulful vocals instantly demand the listener’s attention. We adore the addictive melodies that fill the sonic spectrum with vivid colour.
‘After Midnight’ is a stand-out song with a staccato guitar which injects a rich texture into the piece. In addition, we love the layered vocals that build the track’s intensity.
In addition, ‘Away From Here’ has a welcoming vibe and stays with the listener long after the music has ended. Finally, ‘I Knew It Was Time’ closes the release, and it will have you reaching for the repeat button!
Emma Ragen cites her influences as coming from artists such as Phoebe Bridgers, Henry Jamisen, and Vacations. We can hear these muses coming through on ‘Beautiful Days’ but make no mistake, Ragen is making music all of her own.
Ragen says about the EP release, “‘Beautiful Days’ is a collection of songs that are all close to my heart. As my grandmother says, ‘These are my favourite songs in the world’.”
‘Beautiful Days’ has been masterfully recorded at Ragen’s home studio by Niko Sitaras. Together the duo have crafted a body of work that puts Emma Ragen as an artist you need to know about this Summer of 2022.
At the tender age of 17, Emma Ragen is a formidable talent destined for big things. She is a talented instrumentalist and songwriter. Her songwriting allows her to stand out from the crowd, and we look forward to hearing what this troubadour will do next.
Until then, ‘Beautiful Days’ is available to stream from the link below. Enjoy today!
