Emma Ruth Rundle Live Review // Mutual Grimness

They say never meet your heroes. Meet your heroines instead! Known also for Marriages and Red Sparowes, Emma Ruth Rundle has fully realised herself in a solo singer-songwriter territory. Atmospheric ballads by Emma conquer hearts and ears of Danish extreme music fans. Thematically focussing on grief, self-destruction, death, Rundle provides her comfort with shoe-gazey melodies. Supported by a band that includes Jaye Jayle, she sounds mature and heavy. Red Sparowes’-like soundscapes are stripped down only for ‘Shadows of my name’ -  a triumphant finale that leaves everyone with their jaws on the floor.
