Embers Releases New EP “To: The Moon”
San Diego-based singer-songwriter Embers released his sophomore EP “To: The Moon” on October 27, 2023.
It is his first project in a year since the 2022 debut EP “Emo Szn”.
The EP comprises 5-track, featuring a guest appearance from American singer-songwriter Kellin Quinn. All songs were written by Jason Wildes.
Embers said of the EP, “'To: The Moon' is a melting pot of my influences using inspiration from pop punk and emo to reflect on mental health struggles, toxic relationships, and emotional turbulence. A step forward from my last EP 'EMO SZN', 'To: The Moon' finds itself a more energetic place in my catalog.”
He continued, “Recording the EP has been an amazing journey. On my first EP, I was going through such a hard time, and it reflects in the music. I'm so proud of the lyrical content and how therapeutic performing those songs is for me and my fans, from what I've been told. This second EP takes the basis of the sound of the first EP, but bumps up the energy x 100. The guitars are bigger and the lyrics are less desperate and stronger to match. I can't wait for people to hear the new music live.”
- Embers explained about some tracks for the EP.
“scratch my name”
“I wrote this song while on the road and dealing with the ups and downs of trying to maintain a relationship. I wanted to capture the sound that reminds me of singing along to my favorite bands in the car, but with the lyrics of an emo revenge banger.”
“eating me alive” featuring Kellin Quinn
“When this song came together I was inspired by the nu-metal vibes of the early 2000s and I wanted to mix the epic, grandiose sound of strings with a strong chorus. Adding Kellin to the track really brought it to the next level. The way he wrote his second verse playing off the words I used in the first blew me away on first listen. This is one of those tracks where even though it's my song, I can't stop listening to it."
