Alfa Mist & Emmavie’s Epoch EP showcases the work of a low-profile duo making high-quality music
If Alfa Mist and Emmavie had a higher profile (and perhaps big-label backing), there’s little chance their seven-track EP would be free. It’s among the best releases – free or paid-for – of 2014.
What’s not, however, freely available is more information about the duo. What is known is that Emmavie is from west London and counts The Neptunes, Erykah Badu and Dorian Concept among her influences. As for Alfa Mist, he’s, er… based in London.
Just as well their music speaks volumes. The standard of songwriting is high throughout the Epoch EP, which begins with the mellifluous Stay Here and culminates with a plaintive reworking of Laura Mvula’s Sing To The Moon.
Once you’ve listened to the EP and watched the Easily, I Forget video, you’ll realise it’s only a matter of time before Alfa Mist & Emmavie are signed. Before that inevitably happens, treat yourself to their free EP here.
