Emilia Martensson “Arm Ourselves (Against Ourselves)” – Listen

Emilia Martensson has the crystal clear voice of an angel, but on this folk y song, with Pentangle-ish jazz flecks, the Swedish born, London dwelling, vocalist sings of the light and shade of the parent-child relationship and the tricks we can play on ourselves to undo our better instincts.

Arm Ourselves (Against Ourselves)‘ is taken from Emilia Martensson ‘s fourth album ‘Loredana‘, which she describes as an introspective journey through the adversity and wilderness of the term ‘Mother‘.
