Emily Wells’ Releases Cover Of Haddaway’s What Is Love To Celebrate Her UK Tour Starting This Week

As Emily Wells prepares to embark on a full UK tour which starts this week, the Brooklyn musician reveals a striking cover of Haddaway’s dancefloor classic, What Is Love. Wells will also release her forthcoming single, Mama’s Gonna Give You Love, on December 16 through Partisan Records. The single is taken from her album Mama which was released earlier this year.

The mesmerising tones of Emily Wells are clear to see as she takes on this 90s dancefloor classic, completely transforming the track to make it her own. It offers a glimpse of what to expect from Emily’s enthralling live show as delicate violin strings are strewn against subtle dance-beats in a way that fall together so naturally.

You can catch Emily Wells live on the following dates:
7 Dec – Start The Bus – Bristol
8 Dec – Ruby Lounge – Manchester
9 Dec – Belgrave Music Hall – Leeds
10 Dec- King Tuts – Glasgow

Best known for a combination of subtle hip-hop inflections strewn against her recognisable feline vocals, Emily Wells’ music is somehow simultaneously delicate yet deeply effective. The UK release of Mama followed Emily Wells’ contribution to the soundtrack for Park Chan-Wook’s psychological thriller, Stoker, for which she recorded track, Becomes The Colour.

From the start of her career, Wells’ musical interests were simply too wide ranging for just one instrument. Trained as a classical violinist, the Texan soon created her own sonic spaceship; an ever-growing pulsating arsenal of synthesisers, effects pedals and toy instruments all tied together with live sampling and a genre-agnostic approach that is diverse, distinctive and utterly her own. Honing her sound on a series of independent releases including an acclaimed cover of The Notorious B.I.G.’s classic, Juicy, it was these initial glimpses and the countless live dates both as bandleader and solo performer that carved out the musician she has become today.

Emily Wells is an artist whose innate complexities lift her out of that particular stable and into a realm all of her own and with a live show that is diverse, distinctive and utterly her own, it’s a performance not to be missed.
