Lofi recordings drowned in a hall of reverb, Emily Reo is an uprising female pop musician following in the footsteps of Beach House and similar acts. Her songs take interesting spins on guitar, keyboard, drum set ups and most have some sort of haunting feel to them. She has played with Truman Peyote, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, and more of theFMLY crew, she played Total Bummer with Levek and other notable mid-Florida acts, and she's setting up a tour in the upcoming months. From the recordings to booking her own shows to making the artwork to her own releases, she seems to have a very DIY approach to it all. If you're into the wonderful tunes by our friend Michelle Blades, this may be for you.
--Performing "Metal On Your Skin"--
Not the best cinematography but gives you a feel for her live performances (with Dark Sea of Awareness helping her perform). This was at Total Bummer, if you look hard enough you can see us in the crowd.
as described from a user on last.fm--"emily reo is an experimental/noise pop musician from orlando, florida. her songwriting reflects the ethereal rhythmic pop sound of beach house with haunting echoey melodies a la kria brekkan and julianna barwick, as well as the lo-fi recording sound of tickley feather, julian lynch and best coast. the culmination of her influences and compositional technique creates a sound that is uniquely dark, distant and intriguingly catchy."
Emily Reo is playing with Dark Sea of Awareness, Technobox, and Hear Hums May 14th at Will's Pub in Orlando. If you're around I highly recommend it.
