Brash, in your face pop, full of insanely catchy melodies. That's what Emily Vaughn brings to the metaphorical table. We came across Emily on soundcloud last year with the epic 'Think Twice', and now she's back with THE pop single to end all pop singles.
So - we sat down with her, at the metaphorical table, and chatted everything from piano smashing, Charli XCX and.. bops. All about them bops...
Hey Emily! Quick fire: three words to describe your music?
Sassy, bold, unapologetic.
And now - imagine someone sadly can’t hear it, what’s a good visual representation of your music?
My music is pretty blatantly honest, it’s basically all the things you wanna say but can’t. It’s sassy and empowering, yet delicate and vulnerable.
New music is on the way… NICE. What can people expect?
Bops n vulnerability.
We see a sneaky little video teaser of something on your socials. Can ya give us a little insight into what that may be?
Music is comin’, and you know me- the more visuals the merrier, right?
IMAGINE TIME - you’ve had a mega-breakthrough. EVERYONE in music wants to work with you. Who’s the first person you say yes to (writing or performing).
I’ve always wanted to write with Sia. She’s truly one of the most inspiring writers / artists in the industry. It’d be such a dream to see what we’d come up with together.
Your aesthetic is cute af. For each single / video, how do ya find inspiration? Do ya like get a mood board or something?
Thx boo. I usually just try to visually create how the song feels and bring the lyrics to life with a strong visual representation. It comes pretty naturally since my songs have a hint of sass that is also apart of my personality. But I usually also create a mood board to pull inspiration from photos that I find visually compelling.
What’s the EV dream? Big shows? Huge hits?
My dream is just to do music in one way or another, for the rest of my life. It’s always been that simple. I’m writing for myself & others right now, so my focus is simply creating music and giving it to the people who want to listen. Hits and big shows are the dream though. Well, that and win a grammy in the next 8 years. Nbd.
What’s your first musical memory? A song? Bashing a piano?
Low key the first thing that came to mind was my sister throwing me off a bed at age 3 and hitting my face on an electric piano. To this day I still somehow have a scar above my lip from it. Maybe it was then that I realized I wanted to do music forever, who knows. You could say it uh, knocked the music into me? No? Okay.
We are a pop site so we have to ask, who is your fav pop star of all time?
This is literally the hardest question ever. I feel like I have a fave pop star from every generation so I’m finding it nearly impossible to narrow it down to ONE. But I probably have to go with Michael Jackson. I grew up watching his music videos and movies when I probably should’ve been watching barnie. (Thanks, mom.) Also he genuinely is the king of pop.
And what’s one pop jam you are LOVING right now?
Literally anything off the new Charli XCX album, but if I had to chose one I’d prob go with “ily2”
Finally, where can peeps find ya (both social media / upcoming shows).
instagram / twitter: @emilyvaughnx <3 upcoming shows are still in the works, but I’ll keep you posted bbs.
We'd like to thank Emily for taking the time to answer these questions.
How HUGE is 'Mood'? FREAKIN' HUGE - that's the answer. We're a little bit in love with everything about Emily, and we reckon it won't be long before the rest of the music-listening population catches on too.
So - you know what to do - support! Go follow Emily on those social channels she mentioned above. Buy the single! Go to her shows. Oh - and keep an eye or two peeled for the music video she has on the way, we hear it's really something special.
