Emily King - Scenery
Scenery is a culmination for King and Most.
The two are perfectionists, and Scenery is a precise-yet-fluid blend of '80s pop and rock, contemporary R&B and light jazz touches that, together, reveal a starry-eyed earnestness. Most is a gifted producer who can bend limited means to full effect. He creates flawless orchestral segments from manipulated samples and the feeling of live drumming from his drum-machine programming. King contributes beautiful acoustic guitar work to songs like the gentle "Marigold," but her greatest strength as a performer is her voice.
