‘Look at me, I am taking it badly’, Emily Keener croons on her latest single release Do You Love Me Lately? The minimalistic take of it brings the midwestern raised musician back to her roots of melancholic indie folk and Americana. Singing of a relationship on the edge of breaking, instead of dwelling in sorrow, the artist reflects with vulnerability and self-doubt on the failures. The grief-ridden vocals echo quietly yet, emotive over the reduced backing beat of the drums and the gentle guitar melody. Emily Keener, who started out making music at the age of 12 sings with grace, dedicated honesty and maturity beyond her years.
