Emily Breeze - Ordinary Life

Ordinary Life is Bristol-based indie noir-pop artist Emily Breeze's latest musical powerhouse, taken from her upcoming third solo album Rapture, set to be released on February 2023. An enthralling sonic adventure with vocals that absolutely shine throughout the song and make you feel all the feels.

Emily explains about the song: "Ordinary Life is a reflection on a gloriously misspent youth and a celebration of the magic, misery, miracles and monotony that are sewn into the fabric of everyday existence where you are the hero of your own mythic quest. It’s a quest that involves biblical first loves and tragic one night stands, epic all nighters and the quiet desperation that follows as your dreams disperse like the fronds of a dandelion clock in the cold morning air. You blink, two decades have passed and you become the thing you always despised, a three dimensional, functional adult with reasonable expectations"
