Say Anise Shares New Single ‘I Remember’

Say Anise, the moniker of London-based Folk/Pop singer and songwriter Emily Barnett, is back with her brand new single I Remember, the first to be taken from her upcoming debut EP.

I Remember is a moody, indie-folk song about the sadness and madness one goes through following a tough breakup. I  am a fan of her lovely vocals which are quite smooth yet packed with so much emotion, soaring beautifully over the infectious production. I am particularly fond of the intricate acoustic guitars and how they are beautifully intertwined with smooth percussion and create a warm and intimate atmosphere perfect for her storytelling to soar. I am also enjoying the moody and melancholic touches in the song that kept me coming back to it several times. Check it out below!

Speaking about the song, Say Anise said,

This song was written after going through a sudden and traumatic breakup at the end of last summer. I was inspired by the character Miss Havisham from Dickens’ ‘Great Expectations’. Miss Havisham was an eccentric character who had been left at the alter years before and wasn’t able to face up to it. She sat in her home, still wearing her wedding dress, surrounded by the remains of her wedding breakfast, now decaying all around her. I wanted to capture something of the sadness but also madness of this character and what she was feeling, and by using her voice I was able to take what I was feeling to a new and more extreme place.
