Indie Pop Duo Emily + Shawn Reveal Their New Indie Pop Rock Tune Emily + Shawn are the Brooklyn-based modern indie folk duo who's varied interests and a soulful sense of purpose imbue the pair’s adventurous spin on the folk tradition. Their music is an authentic reflection of their lives. Emily + Shawn’s songs are informed by their ethics, their myriad of experiences and interests, and their day to day interactions, which they characterize sweetly as “healthy clashes.”

Today, Emily + Shawn’s are issuing a series a singles that will eventually be bundled together as an EP produced by David Baron (Lumineers, Meghan Trainor, Shawn Mendes). The latest single "Mama Told Me" is a fun pop rock song with a George Michael kind of sound and spirit. It's a playful, flirty track they wrote about trying to get themselves out of a funk.

"We wrote 'Mama Told Me' at a time when we were at a crossroads professionally and personally, and felt a bit lost on our path. We love how the rhythm section drives that sense of urgency while still keeping the song energetic and soulful," share the duo.

Though nostalgia is a lyrical and emotional component to the emily + shawn aesthetic, the duo are pop-savvy fearless songwriters, blowing the dust off stodgy traditional music through integrating fresh genre approaches. emily + shawn have been playfully described as “new age folk-pop,” and the pair swirl together catchy melodies, thoughtful lyrics, mesmerizing vocal harmony interlace, and unvarnished storytelling. Within this vibrant mix of sounds, emily + shawn recall diverse influences such as Maggie Rogers, Fleetwood Mac, and the Lumineers.
