    Emma Lohan grew up in a small village in Co. Galway off the West Coast of Ireland. She now lives between London and Palma de Mallorca and is set to release her debut album Black Atlantic. Produced in Manawax Studios in East London and mastered by the pioneering UK dub producer/selector Nick Manasseh, Black Atlantic is a gently crafted exploration of sounds Emma collected on her travels along the Atlantic Coasts of Ireland, West Africa and South America.Lohan's light, distinct vocal style floats beautifully over the rich backing of her 6 piece band combining folk and ethno-pop elements in a fusion of world sounds. The 8 song album closes with the title track Black Atlantic (a live recording she made with the band in a studio across the road from the school she spent her youth in Galway). Lohan paints images of childhood isolation and loneliness with her lyrics, but the song feels anything but sad – it has a transient quality that makes these painful moments feel less melancholy. Her upbeat rhythms and casual delivery make this a triumphant closing song.

Track Name: The 8th
There's just one thing I'd like to say to you.
What in the world, are we going to do?
See wasn't May 22nd so great,
but now I'd like to review, my rights too

And I appeal to you
Can I appeal to you

It makes me wonder, what year we're living in,
When saving a woman's life is seen as a mortal sin.
Maybe it's hard for you to understand
But my words are like birds, they fly away with you listening.

And I appeal to you
Can I appeal to you

And dare I say her name, for you to remember.
How do I say her name? To help you recall.
How should I say her name?

Savita, we lit candles for you.
Savita, we filled the streets for you.
Savita, we'll remember.

And we appeal to you
Can we appeal to you.
