No band wants to write the same album over and over again...and for Emarosa, that means turning the page and and introducing the world to the band’s newest chapter—the one that best represents where they’ve grown and where they’re going. “We’re at that point where we’ve realized that there’s no consequences for making whatever record we want to make,” frontman Bradley Walden explains. “We started writing, and it felt like the book was being thrown out the window. There are no rules.”
Even more than the bold sonic shift, though, is the new lyrical perspective that Emarosa embraces on "Ready To Love". While there’s no denying that the track still has shades of heartbreak guised under a beautiful melody, Walden wanted to give this single a change in tone.
“I was tired of writing sad records. That’s what I used as my way of dealing with things,” Walden says. “While this record is a lot of realizations and accepting faults, it’s also not all sad. You don’t have to be miserable.”
As a body of work, the band's most-recent album, Peach Club takes full advantage of Emarosa’s biggest strengths...and that’s the beauty of it. At its core, the record represents more than just a sonic shift and sincere step forward. It represents the fact that Emarosa is exactly where they want to be, and it embodies the band’s growing family listeners. It’s a brave record that sees Emarosa showing their fans where they’re going and inviting them to join them on the journey.
