Singer, songwriter, mystic, and extremely talented artist Em launched her second album Pathway To Aetheria. The 8-track collection follows up on her debut EP titled Em. The new project is filled with her signature sounds full of feminine energy, secrets, and poetry.
The opening pop-folk track, ‘Clear is the way,’ sets up the mood for all the songs that follow it. Em serenades her stories while background hymns swinging from pop to indie, contemporary soul, and new wave electronic. On numbers like ‘Is It Enough,’ and ‘Anxiety,’ Em displays the singing range she has worked on for some time now, and performs flawless vocals going pretty high in the scales.
Pathway To Aetheria, despite being a hybrid of different genres, is a solid, concrete, and well-paced album. The collection was created by Em’s autobiographical narrative, so listeners can easily relate to her experiences. Em swings between influences and changes the level of energy on her tracks, but in the end, listeners receive a really good album by a promising diva.
