Emme Lentino - Shake It Off
Emme Lentino has burst into 2022 with a sure-fire radio and streaming hit.
Shake It Up follows the success of the recent Oceanside remix, Peter Pan, and a string of playlist favourites—including Last Christmas, the reinterpretation of the classic George Michael song, which featured on MTV Australia, the Philadelphia News Channel 17, CTV Calgary (National News in Canada), Global News (National News, Canada) and received airplay on commercial radio world-wide and consumer outlets including Bed, Bath and Beyond.
Shake It Off was featured in a National ad for Victoria’s Secret and is already creating a local and national buzz. Originally from Oregon, US, New Zealand based singer-songwriter Emme Lentino’s brand of country-tinged pop, soul, and pop-rock has featured in several daytime television shows, including ABC’s One Life to Live and All My Children.
The singer-songwriter has co-written and worked with several big hitters, including Greg Cortez (The Kooks, Billy Ray Cyrus, Kim Deal, George Clinton, and L.A. Guns) and Dan Antunovich (Jersey Boys, Kitaro). Emme’s new release unveils another side to the singer-songwriter’s creative armoury, adopting a synth-pop sensibility with an arresting vocal performance to underscore a straight to the point lyric.
Featuring a range of hooks, including power-pop guitar blasts and laid-back, intoxicating R&B grooves, Shake It Off yet again reflects the broad, ever-changing musical perspectives of this talent and will undoubtedly attract unanimous, across the board praise.
‘‘ Emme’s restrained vocal approach that pushes it into an altogether different realm, helping to maintain the track’s less overt sensual overtones. The lyric is direct and clear, yet beneath this accessibility is another layer.
Less country-pop and more contemporary pop, and more precisely synth-pop, Shake It Off’s smooth RnB pop beats merge with a series of synth and keyboard textures, most prominently the swirling keyboard bass. But threaded through are some enticing guitar touches, muted rhythms and interlocking riffs that add to the general sonic aura.
Yet it’s Emme’s restrained vocal approach that pushes it into an altogether different realm, helping to maintain the track’s less overt sensual overtones. The lyric is direct and clear, yet beneath this accessibility is another layer.
Shake It Off is a noticeable change of direction for Emme Lentino and one that will undoubtedly help expand her ever-growing band of listeners.
