Emily Kidd looks at country like the story form it should be viewed as. Her simple lyrics and soulful imagery makes each song a wholesome experience. With two singles having beautiful, touching narratives-she brings something classy to the table every time. This is her latest single, Prisoner.
Just the quality of tone can be talked about for pages together. From the simple strumming chords to the slide guitar and balance of the drums-everything is just right. It is as satisfying as watching a aesthetic recipe come to fruition. Her vocals glamourise the lyrics, as any good country vocalist should. In the flourishes used and the messages written, she expresses her thoughts and matters of the heart with great detail. If there is a feeling of being a prisoner in someone’s heart, it is entrancing. Sometimes, you don’t even know it before its too late. The chords express the duality with crystal perfection.
Emily Kidd uses ideas that are relatable to a country fan who is young. Irrelevant imagery is discarded, honest feelings are contained. It is the making of a track that will be known as one of her best. The execution, lyrics and performance overall were as brilliant as any live show. This song would be a perfect theme in the movie, Forever My Girl (2018). The feelings of love, the vibrant imagery and classy storytelling are things Emily Kidd has depicted in her song as well. You can listen to her other two singles Cry Wolf and Everybody Fooled But Me on her Spotify, and be sure to follow her for more country treasure!
