Usually to have a “signature sound” there would be a wealth of content in an artist’s discography, all of which bearing some consistent musical or sonic character that within the first couple of bars you know whose song is playing. EMERGER has patented their sound with a modest cache of releases, and their 2020 single ‘State of Mind’ is no exception. The South African duo have a jazzy sound with a futuristic pop sheen with a little bit of a bop to it as well. Emma de Goede’s vocal performance is always sharp and teams effortlessly with Gerry Mathee’s lush compositions displaying a degree of mastery over a melody so distinct you would swear both of these immensely creative souls went to school for it.
