Emarosa embrace stylistic change with new single, “Givin’ Up”

Emarosa have released a new single “Givin’ Up”, via Hopeless Records. The new song and music video signal a huge change for the previously labeled post-hardcore band. Over time, the band has been moving further and further from their original sound, and the new song signifies that sound is gone, but that doesn’t mean the band is. Vocally the song is just what you expect from Bradley Walden, but instrumentally it’s a whole new sound. With the introduction of killer sax solos and an overall 80’s music video vibe the band is pop bound, which isn’t a shock as some of Walden’s main influences include Michael Jackson and Prince. The band have posted on media platforms that their new album will blow their previous release, 131, into the water.
