Antenna Farm is pleased to present the newest addition to our roster, Emily Jane White. The first single from her upcoming album, Ode To Sentience, is called Black Silk, and it is released to iTunes today.
White’s previous two albums, Dark Undercoat and Victorian American have received raves from the likes of NPR, Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, Spin, and many more. Her third album Ode to Sentience is her most realized work to date. Drawing upon finger-picked folk, traditional country, classical music and rock, White creates an expansive space for her intuitive lyrics and elegiac vocals.
There’s a rare confidence to Emily Jane White’s songwriting: it’s at once generous and tough-minded, reflective and unsentimental. White possesses a singular voice inspired by the raveled threads of the uncanny in American culture, and it could be said that optimistic melancholy and isolation don’t only suffuse White’s songwriting, but are in her bones. Her passion for social justice informs her songwriting, and while Ode to Sentience is equally engaged as White’s previous works, but delves deeper into the fundamental dynamics of injustice.
Black Silk is the first single from the album Ode To Sentience, slated for a US release this June. Check it out.
