A year after the home produced Absolute Zero Emerald Park is back with the studio produced “Black Box EP”. The sound is familiar from previous releases – indiepop with a touch of melancholy, Martina and Tobias voices in harmony and quirky lyrics. The recording procedure differs somewhat from earlier recordings. Song form, arrangement is this time the product of a collaboration where everyone in the band were equally involved. When coming to the studio everything was settled. The idea has been – what you hear in the headphones is also what you will hear on stage.
Emerald Park can be traced back to 2002. In the ten years since the band has made a musical journey through different genres, from alt.country from powerpop to today’s hybrid of lo-fi, Stephen Merrit, indie, Americana and Indie Canada. The band has garnered a huge success with the songs licensed as Creative Commons. Over 2 million listens and downloads on sites like Jamendo.com, Bandcamp and Archive.org and Youtube Licenses for example, One Direction, Mexico State, and 100’s of extreme sports practitioners speak for themselves.
