“Brooding and riveting, the wide range of stylistic influences hints at the avant-garde sound the band has cultivated over the years, and will certainly spark interest in the forthcoming album.” - Ones To Watch

“Having been compared to neo-soul group Hiatus Kaiyote and indie rockers Alt-J, So Cal’s own EMÆL are going about imprinting their own sound towards cool, cinematic songs.” - GHETTOBLASTER

“EMÆL create an interesting record that highlights its talent for instruments, melodies and some good lyricism works with the excellent sounds this band create throughout this album.” - ThinkingLyrically

Shapeshifters of the organic and electronic, EMÆL is an eclectic group that has converged many genres of music. Originally from SoCal, the eclectic band claims to approach their indie rock music through a classical lens. A mix of art-pop, rock, and electronic, their avant-garde sound is making waves all throughout  the indie music world.

EMÆL released their critically-acclaimed debut album Glasswork, premiering on Northern Transmissions. Glasswork showcases their talent and musicianship throughout the album, creating haunting and dramatic moments weaved together by strings and synths. Their unique fusion of classical melodies with pop sensibilities was called “Indie Chamber Pop” by San Diego's 91XFM, and makes for a sonically stunning debut.

Standout tracks “Yellowtail” and “Little Brown Cloud” showcase the bands ability to approach their indie rock music through a cinematic lens, while “The Boy Who Melts The Sun” is a seamless blend of modern and traditional motifs, inspired by the myth of Icarus, offering subtle yet powerful lyricism.
