Emily and the Ideals is an original music machine. We write across genres, centering in on American Soul, Vintage Rock, y Música en Español. Heavy on the back beat, obsessed with jazz trumpet, and always telling a story. We write music for the grass in the sidewalk cracks, urban love and industrial heartbreak. Lyrics. Lyrics. Lyrics.
