EMM – “Delilah”

Revenge is a dish best served cold. Rising pop star EMM encourages as much with her new song. “Delilah,” a reference to the story in the Bible, drums from the speakers in big booms and bangs. The bass turned on high, the moody, darkly-laced track imagines a woman treating a man like many men treat women. “He was bold enough to betray you / Cold enough to enslave you / No thinking twice,” she sings, acid on her tongue. “He will never live to escape you / Never get to repay you / Eat him alive.” EMM is unflinching in her resolve, made even more palpable with her poison-coated vocal performance. Even in the static haze, her intent is clear.
