New Release & Video: Emilie Kahn – Outro / Island

Emilie Kahn, formerly known as Emilie & Ogden, has announced details of her second full-length album, Outro. The album is a remorseful exit from youth and will be available from February 22nd

Three years after releasing her first album 10,000, Emilie Kahn is no longer the same songwriter. She’s dropped the moniker and with it any sense of impersonation; what’s left is Emilie as herself. Outro is a pained look back at the past as Kahn pores over every misplaced feeling and bad call. Teeming with adulthood’s melancholy, Kahn offers indie pop crafted with a miniaturist hand toward intimacy, while still reaching for the grandiosity of the genre’s icons. This is a record that stings as much as it soothes, and never misses a chance to swing for the fences as she glances around one last time before heading off to some future island

To accompany the news of the album, Kahn has also unveiled a new single, Island…

Island is a daydream of letting everything go and disappearing off the grid. It’s the catharsis song Emilie wrote that ended up inspiring the entire record. “I think as women we are often made to feel like we should be in competition with each other, something I’ve always felt in the music industry; I wrote ‘Island’ about that feeling of isolation that comes with worrying that you may never be special enough”, explains Kahn, “Marie-Soleil Denault – the video’s director – and I decided to subvert that narrative and portray a vision of women finding refuge in solidarity instead”
