Rising, British pop prodigy Emily Burns has today shared an acoustic version of her catchiest single yet; 'Cheat', as the original nears one million streams on Spotify (taking her total Spotify stream count to over five million since her first single release earlier this year). Listen to the acoustic version [smarturl.it/CHEATacoustic]here, or revisit the original.
'Cheat' perfectly demonstrates Emily's knack for story telling in her music, with her relatable lyricism atop impeccable melody and infectious hooks, and is the third cut to be taken from her forthcoming debut mini-album 'Seven Scenes From The Same Summer', out 20th July on 37 Adventures (JONES, salute, Geowulf).
Explaining the meaning behind the song, Emily reveals:
"I wrote “Cheat” after a whirlwind romance that ended much more abruptly than I’d hoped for! I was feeling let down but was struggling to see anything other than the good in this person. Then I had a chat with some friends who reminded me that I would have behaved very differently in the situation so, I went into the studio and expressed that. I wrote this one with LMBY, who’s a really good friend of mine, which made it super easy to get straight to the details and vent freely. I felt much better after writing it…"
Likened to Charli XCX and MØ (The Line of Best Fit) and Sigrid and Tove Lo (Popjustice, Disco Naïveté), 22-year old Emily is writing modern, ambitious, frank pop songs about ex-girlfriends, spite, love and revenge. Having recently returned from some writing sessions in Sweden with MadFun (all female producer crew) and TEN (home of Tove Stryke, Icona Pop and all the Scandi greats), her mini-album release will be supported by a headline London show at Sebright Arms, and a return to her homeland Scotland.

Sat 14th July - Longitude, Dublin
Wed 1st Aug - Sebright Arms, London (headline show)
