Emiliana Torrini - Jungle Drum video! 26 February 2009 in Emiliana Torrini
It always causes great excitement when a new video is delivered to Rough Trade. It’s like when the postman arrives with the Amazon package you’d just started to worry about, only times 100. We were particularly anticipating this one though as it’s such a great track and really deserves to infest every radio in the land until we’re all suitably sick from it.
That Will Young, he's such a sweetheart 4 November 2008 in Emiliana Torrini
Almost bizarrely anyone watching this weeks X Factor would have seen Will Young expressing his fondness for Emiliana. He basically said that one of the contestants was too good for the show and was more of an Emiliana Torrini than an X Factor contestant. Take that Cowell! You Christmas number one stealing ducks arse quaffed knob.
Just look at him, everything he says must be cold hard fact.
Emiliana Makes Big Jumps 13 October 2008 in Emiliana Torrini
As the winter draws near, Emiliana’s new album Me & Armini has become enveloped in warm and toasty blanket of love. Each review so far has been highly positive (just check out the press quotes) and every Dj has been eager to play it. But taking the biscuit, is the news that last week the infamous blogger and gossip queen Perez Hilton took a break from outing Hollywood celebs to post Emiliana’s new video. In a piece entitled ‘Listen: it will lift your heart’, Perez declares our songstress to be everything he loves and awards the video a super special rating of ‘just precious!’. It seems Emiliana can melt even the most scathing of hearts! If your cold hearts needs a little melting, the single is available to buy from today.
Emiliana’s charm is legendary around these parts, and not just because she once bought us one the of finest cakes we’ve ever seen, (and we’ve eaten some serious cakes) but for being one of the warmest, most effervescent and kindly people you could ever hope to meet. Though perhaps the most endearing thing about Emilinana is her ambitious approach to music that sees her producing feel-good summer time hits along side one-note murder ballads all with equal success. Her irresistible enthusiasm for life is evident on the song, Big Jumps, where she asks, ‘Are you afraid to break some bones?’ its playful music like this that prevents us all from dying of boredom. At the other end of her truly kalediscopic spectrum, Emiliana can create the kind of intimate and atmospheric songs that can whisper their way into your bloodstream and save you from loneliness.
