Emei Releases New Song “Cynical”
Los Angeles-based Chinese-American alt-pop singer-songwriter Emei released a new song “Cynical”
The song is the title track of her upcoming sophomore EP “Cynical”.
It was written by Emily Li, Skyler Stonestreet, and Boy Blue who also produced the track.
The accompanying music video was directed by Aser Santos Jr., who also created the music video for her 2022 single “That Girl”.
Emei explained, “When I met Aser Santos (DP) on the set of my 'That Girl' music video, I knew instantly we had chemistry through the camera. Our creative visions have always aligned for my music and it is with sincere excitement and giddiness to show the world our baby, the 'Cynical' music video. The moment I wrote this song, I knew it was my title track and I knew it needed a dramatic and ridiculous music video. The song has always been my favourite to play live so of course, a moshpit was a must. We then landed on an aesthetic inspired by Tim Burton and this video became everything I've wanted and more. Welcome to the title track of my EP. Welcome to the world of Cynical.”
- Emei embarks on The Cynical Tour in November. The tour kicks off at Drake Hotel in Toronto on November 2 and will conclude at Moroccan Lounge in Los Angeles on November 18, 2023.
Emei shared on social media, “i've loved this song ever since we wrote it in october and when i performed it live for the first time in may, i knew i had to announce an entire tour to go along with it. i can't wait to scream this song with you guys in london next week (so soon!!!) and in all the cities i'm visiting in november!!”
