Sweden's Electro Queen EMMON Returns with Haunting New Single 'DARK' and Continues European Festival Dominance

EMMON, also known as Emma Nylén, has been riding high on the success of her latest album, 'RECON', which received glowing reviews and nominations for best album from esteemed publications such as GAFFA, HYMN, and DN. Notably, the album was awarded "Synth Release of the Year" at the 2023’s Manifest Gala, the prestigious "Release of the Year" by the highly appraised Synthsläggan Awards, as well as "Electro of the Year" by GAFFA Awards. Now, Sweden's own Electro Clash queen is back with a new EP, set to drop at the prestigious boutique label Icons Creating Evil Art later this spring.
The first offering from EMMON’s new EP is the vampire epic 'DARK', in which the artist's distinctive soprano vocals are enveloped in impeccably clean yet gritty soundscapes. The song weaves a narrative reminiscent of classic vampire lore, exploring themes of light and dark, violence and romance. EMMON elaborates on the track's inspiration, stating, "DARK is about vampirism and/or a person's obsession with their partner in an unhealthy relationship, where the need for closeness goes too far. A desperation and insanity that might end in destruction or even in evil sudden death… But it also reflects the romanticized violence found in any random vampire movie, where darkness and light are crucial to a vampire's existence.”
In addition to her preparations for the new EP, EMMON has been a whirlwind of activity since the release of her acclaimed comeback album, 'RECON', gracing stages and festivals across Europe. Recent highlights include supporting D.A.F. (Robert Görl) in Copenhagen, enchanting audiences at the NCN Festival in Leipzig (DE), and hosting last season of P3MIX on Swedish National Radio. Looking ahead to 2024, EMMON is set to make appearances at major festivals within her genre, including Wave Gotik Treffen in Leipzig, Prague Gotik Treffen, and Infest in Bradford (UK).
Mark your calendars for the release of EMMON's captivating new single, 'DARK', on March 22nd, 2024, courtesy of the Swedish Boutique Label Icons Creating Evil Art.
