Matt Emery has a different musical side to being the drummer of indie powerpop quintet Stagecoach with their quirkily fun, hilariously witty, contagiously enthusiastic tunes and live performances.
For those of you who haven't heard of Matt Emery's solo project, it's been described as 'hauntingly ethereal' and much like 'Sigur Ros scoring the piano.' Often breathtaking, always beautiful, Emery's voice interacts gracefully with the melancholic melodies of his piano. This is the soundtrack of the most vivid of your bittersweet memories.
Matt Emery has kindly agreed to perform exclusively for the blog on his acoustic guitar. Do enjoy.
