Terry Emm - Loved And Never Lost
Out 3rd June 2013 (Azez Records)
Terry Emm is increasingly gaining recognition and high plaudits for creating slow burning understated alt-folk with beautiful arrangements, English sensibilities and endearing poetic lyrics.
'Loved And Never Lost' is the first single to be taken from Emm's forthcoming third album, the track details Emm's sentimental reflections on his changing life and perspectives on the world around him and perhaps signals a coming of age and maturing from the earlier teenage efforts of his critically acclaimed 'White Butterflies' debut and the recent angst ridden 'Petals Fallen Off The Sun' album. Calina De La Mare's (Sophia, Tindersticks) majestic string arrangements soar above stumbling and building epic drums by Stuart Wilkinson and producer Michael Clarke's (Clarkesville, Dan Whitehouse) subtle accompaniments in what makes for a moving and beautiful track with a certain timeless quality to it.
The release of ‘Loved And Never Lost’ follows the success of the pretty Christmas single 'Gently' which received much airplay including from the likes of Gideon Coe and Chris Hawkins on BBC 6 Music and the animated video for which was picked up by over 50 music blogs around the world, including The Guardian Music Blog.
