The cinematic ‘Unspoken’ features the powerful vocals of Emiji's partner, Sandra Maria, and is set for release on February 24.
Neo-classical composer Emiji has returned with 'Unspoken', the second single from his upcoming debut album.
Real name Marcin Ciszczon, Emiji is the co-founder of one of Ireland's most successful independent production houses, Diffusion Lab.
The track is filled with riveting, relaxing piano melodies and utilises Sandra Maria's ethereal vocal strength to curate three minutes of absolute magic.
‘Unspoken’ examines the vulnerability and bliss of feeling unconditional love and the wisdom and beauty of nature. The track draws influences from a psychedelic journey in a forest the artist experienced with his partner, whose vocals feature on the track.
“In my experience, magic mushrooms can be a great tool if used properly, not as a sort of “entertainment” and definitely not a party drug,” Emiji explains of the use of psychedelics.
“That time we took mushrooms in the forest, it allowed us to open our minds and gain a deeper understanding of ourselves, which helped us re-evaluate past traumatic experiences. That was the inspiration behind the track”.
The track was penned immediately following the duo's inspiring, shared experience.
“We sat down and wrote it in a day,” Emiji explains, “I sat down on piano and Sandra wrote the lyrics and these beautiful, moving vocal melodies."
In the final refrain, the song drifts wistfully to its conclusion, as Sandra Maria sings about 'two becoming one'. As referenced in the track’s title, the memories of such an experience, and its impact, go unspoken, it's a memory living only in the whistling of the forest.
Following the release of the first single 'Larimar' in January, ‘Unspoken’ marks the second release from Emiji’s upcoming album.
My Journeys is scheduled to arrive on March 26th, and documents the importance of becoming one’s best self as well as exploring the use of holistic medicines, embracing nature, encouraging change, and showing courage to take the first step on a voyage of self-discovery.
Emiji earmarks himself as an artist unafraid to question himself and the world around him; willing to stretch the limits of creativity in an effort to best understand some of life’s most timeless themes.
