New Music: Emarosa is Back With Their ‘131 Reimagined’ EP

It is truly something special when an artist takes the time to reimagine their music in a new light beyond that of an acoustic track or a remix– and lucky for us, rock favourites Emarosa did just that with their 131 Reimagined EP. The four track EP contains a reimagined selection of tracks from their 2016 release 131, in which the band took the opportunity to record the lyrics and melodies on previous hits in a new light.

As opposed to their usual trademark sound– fantastic melodic rock with almost ethereal vocals– this EP decides to test the band by going against the sound their known for. On the topic of their decision to rerecord their tracks in a new light, singer Bradley Walden states “There’s therapy in opening old wounds. We wanted to see a different side of the select few & give them a new life”, and I can say that it’s without a doubt that these tracks are given a new light in this EP. The tracks are darker, bolder, a bit more emotional, and something new musically for the band. The EP truly showcases Emarosa‘s talent, in that they beautifully reinvented themselves in a way that fans might not expect. This release is a great opportunity for older fans to see their favourite band in a new light, in addition to it being an opportunity for new fans (or even first time listeners) to leave their previous misconceptions of the incredibly talented artists behind as they find something new to love.

The release of the 131 Reimagined EP kicks off the band’s last national tour in support of 131, starting in Pittsburgh on 9/23 and ending in Chicago on 10/22. This tour marks the end of the 131 era, and with the release of this new EP, I wouldn’t be surprised if the band performs some of these reworked versions on the road– making this tour an essential to your 2017 tour line up.
