Emma Blackery: Take Me Out Single Review


26 year old Emma Blackery is not only a well known YouTube personality but she’s a talented independent singer/ songwriter who has an awful lot to offer. Emma made her solo emergence onto the music scene in 2012, since then she’s unleashed 5 exquisite EPs (debut EP Human Behavior literally doesn’t exist anywhere anymore) and she’s supported the likes of Busted, Pixie Lott and Ella Eyre.

10th August 2018 saw Blackery unveil a brand new track and this being Take Me Out. This dazzling delight is taken from upcoming debut album Villians which will be unveiled on 31st August through RWG Records. Being enthralled with prior singles Dirt, Agenda and Icarus only heightened my expectations for Emma’s first ever full length record.

Here is what Emma said regarding this new single “I’m really excited for everyone to hear it. It’s a song I really connect with and one of my favourites from Villains. The song deals with feelings of paranoia when you are feeling exposed and isolated by your friends”. 

Take Me Out was produced by Toby Scott (Little Mix, Girls Aloud, The Saturdays) and it doesn’t disappoint in the slightest. In fact this sumptuous song was a whimsical ballad aided by brutally honest lyrics revolving around paranoia “I put these walls up/ Questioning the motives of my friends/ They can’t be trusted/ I’m finding that I’m the only one I have/ Next time you see me/ I wont stop to say hello/ Cause I know what you want/ And I know what I’m in for/ I’m lurking in the shadows/ Biding my time/ Whatcha gonna do, whatcha gonna do/ Whatcha gonna do to Take Me Out”. Everything about this number was on point, those vibrant verses were so relatable and then you had the uplifting chorus. Behind the whole YouTube personality, Emma Blackery still has to deal with her own stuff and just taking time out “to find herself” after the October tour would work wonders.

On the whole Emma has crafted a sheer masterpiece which has me relishing Villains on 31st August 2018.
