12 Songs, 42 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Second Love begins with the underwater trance of “Swimming Pool,” where a heavily filtered swell of aquatic acoustic guitar gives way to echoing drums and Emmy the Great’s dreamy vocals. The album continues to unfurl dense, gorgeous soundscapes, like the romantic, cinematic slow-burn of “Hyperlink” or the smoky, ’80s-indebted R&B of “Never Go Home,” whose heavy reverb supports layers of airy synth. Throughout, Emma-Lee Moss spins powerfully emotive songs, particularly the softly passionate, piano-driven “Lost In You.”
