Halcyon selects: Emika – 3 Hours

Emika is a 25 years old czech-born young woman from Bristol, who released a very promising debut album on October 2011. She produces, sings and writes her own songs, she plays piano and synthesizers and her sound is being described as dubstep, but also post techno, cold wave and hard beats characterize her. Having Thom York already as fan, since he recently said on BBC that he hopes she gets really famous and releasing a critically acclaimed album, Emika seems to be one of the strongest breakthrough artists of the year. A few days ago, her first video clip for the song “3 Hours” premiered on Pitchfork, directed by the multitalented Jimmy Edgar, who is also featured in it. The single is going to be released on February 13 via Ninja Tunes.
