Emilia Tarrant Releases New Song “Best Friend Heartbreak”
British singer-songwriter Emilia Tarrant will her second EP “When It Was Chaotic” on March 17, 2023.
From the EP, she released a new song “Best Friend Heartbreak” along with a music video on February 3, 2023.
The track was written by Emilia Tarrant, Joe Mutton, and Charlie Thomas. Produced by Joe Mutton, and Charlie Thomas.
Emilia Tarrant said of the song, “This is probably the rawest song for me that I've released to date. I'm not going to lie, it's pretty sad...! It's a story I've been trying to write about and get off my chest for a couple years now, and then 'Best Friend Heartbreak' came along. It's not often you hear songs about friend breakups, but as such a relatable subject, there should definitely be more. It perfectly captures the pain I felt after losing a friendship and how much I miss them still! It turned into a letter to myself too; as someone who hates giving up on anything, especially people, the lyric “Em just give up” is a phrase that I tend to want to scream at myself over and over again. Anyway, these lyrics, the emotion, and the production too, feel very 'me', and I'm so proud of what Charlie, Joe and I created.”
- The accompanying video was directed by Tom Knibbs.
Emilia Tarrant said of the video, “The music video for 'Best Friend Heartbreak' has to be my favourite. The inspiration came to me almost as soon as I wrote the song, and turned out exactly how I had imagined. Tom Knibbs (director) and I really wanted to convey the raw emotion through the colouring and underwater visuals especially, creating a sense of suffocation. The way the video flows, perfectly captures the desperation of the lyrics and power of the song's production too. I think we achieved this pretty well considering how cold the pool was! Silly me thought it was a sensible idea to shoot it in January and we were shivering for hours after... The things we do for the creative, huh! Don't try this at home kids...”
