On her solo debut, Embla & the Karidotters don’t “go gently into the night,” as she professes with standout cut “Wild Hearts.” Feeling as both a travelin’ tune and a plea to live ferociously despite everything life may hurl your way. “Life’s too short to not give it a go / Whatever makes you happy, do it / But just know that wild hearts will always be shamed,” sings Embla. Guitar and drums shine in unison, warmly inviting the listener to nestle further into its tingling layers. Be warned: it causes a happy sensation to rippling throughout your soul.
