Following on from his 2018 EP ‘Ornate’ Terry Emm revisits a track called ‘Here’ originally released in 2012.

Lukas Drinkwater takes over the production, enriching it by adding new instrumentation to the track which explores love and loss. It is given an Americana identity and the addition of the double bass helps to bring the song to life. The new version gives it more of a vintage 70s vibe whilst maintaining his non-conformist approach to song structure and form.

The lyrics are particularly strong on this track. After going so long without releasing new music you may wonder why Emm hasn’t released something new and original that we haven’t heard before but his reimagining of this track was right on time and he has made it new.

Now firmly back in the saddle, I’m keen to hear more from Emm and hope he continues to collaborate with Drinkwater as it appears to be the perfect combination.
