Release Date – 21st May 2021
Very limited LP on Cream / Blue twist vinyl
Composed after ethnographic study into her Irish folk song roots, and recorded as part of her senior thesis in experimental electronic music, Emma originally wrote The Bath as a piece for eight voices to be performed live. Due to the COVID pandemic, she ended up recording all eight parts alone in her childhood bedroom, mixing and producing it herself.
Emma found her way to Trapped Animal Records after a quirk in the Bandcamp algorithm led her to listen to – her now label mate – Maija Sofia’s similarly named debut Bath Time. Signed within a fortnight of making contact with the label at the end of 2020, during a bleak winter, the label quickly ploughed ahead to schedule release of The Bath.
