Melting Vinyl are pleased to announce that the enchanting Emiliana Torrini will play a warm up show for her Glastonbury performance at St George’s Church 27th June.
Her flawless voice and playful wit make her a captivating performer, touring her new album ‘Tookah’. Released on legendary indie institution Rough Trade, there’s something magical and mystical about the nine tracks that make up the album, laced with a thread of electro which is new to Torrini’s stunningly beautiful sound.
‘Tookah’ follows 2008’s fantastically received ‘Me And Armini’. It sees Emiliana back in the studio with her long-term producer / collaborator Dan Carey. As well as Emiliana’s three previous albums the pair co-wrote and produced Kylie Minogue’s Grammy award-nominated track ‘Slow’ which went straight to number 1 upon release. ‘Jungle Drum’ from Emiliana’s last album ‘Me And Armini’ also charted at number 1 in several countries including Germany where it stayed for 9 weeks.
Emilina has an 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.
A truly special evening not to be missed.
