In her latest single “LOZER (feat. A Z)”, EMM delivers a powerful performance and creative fusion of Pop and Phonk. Full of dynamic elements, EMM worked with producer Jason Mater to create a track that highlights the underground genre which connects gaming, comics, and electronic music. Lyrically, I wrote LOZER (With A Z) about losing fear of what others think. I’ve never really fit in and I’ve had to learn to accept and celebrate myself as I am. The song is funny and lighthearted (“I heard she used to sniff sharpies”) and self deprecating (“I’m such a fucking loser”), but also recognizing the empowerment and freedom in self acceptance (“I love the way I am cause I’m a God damn star). A multi-instrumentalist, producer, songwriter and four-octave vocalist, EMM isn’t your traditional LA pop singer. She’s unapologetic, fierce and thrives as a self-made independent artist. With over 100 million streams […]
