Her early influences were formed from listening to her parent’s music collection around the house and in the car on family holidays to Europe. Playlists including Coldplay, Doves, Kings of Leon, Foals, Moby & Jack Johnson. Emilia says, ‘It was Moby who inspired me to pursue music production when in education'.

Emilia says of the track
'Honeymoon Phase is based on the stereotypical fairy-tale beginning that most new relationships endure, and surviving the end of it. It covers the ebbs and flows of a new relationship, the choice we face whether it’s worth fighting for, as well as the inevitable cyclical argumentative stage: ‘we fight, we cry, we hug, we fight again’.

On working with producer Luke Potashnick (Gabrielle Aplin)
'I was extremely excited to work with Luke Potashnick on Honeymoon Phase for my first time recording with muliti instrumental layered production. To start, we recorded using a dampened piano, covering the strings of the Piano with a blanket for a soft and slightly out of tune sound to reflect the bittersweet subject. We tried many different sounds to layer over this to express the emotional turmoil and a sense of desperation through these choices.'
