I write about songs.

Emmy the Great, “M.I.A.”

I’m a sucker for this kind of thing—songs that mention other songs or other musicians, like this one, a kind of updating of “Leader of the Pack” or another girl-group teen-death melodrama, with a contemporary pop-fan twist. Emmy the Great is the stage name of Emma-Lee Moss, a singer-songwriter who is part of the same loose group of young London folk musicians that I referred to earlier in my post about Johnny Flynn.
