Newbie Emmit Fenn delivers a composition, not just a track, with Painting Greys

This track goes from classical to 100 real quick.

Don’t be fooled when you listen to young-gun Emmit Fenn’s track Painting Greys. One might take the track’s simplicity for a bedroom-producer just smashing out crisp and clean automated beats. But this 20-year old is the real deal. The youngster has been playing music for most of his young life and has been classically trained, which you can definitely hear when you listen to the track. Fenn pays homage to classical by showcasing his disciplined skills on piano and violin; whilst still maintaining a sense of individuality with more mainstream high-tops and synths. Not too much is going on at once, simplicity is key, but together- Fenn creates a beautiful composition. A singer as well, Fenn’s solemn vocals is the perfect juxtaposition to his controlled and sharp instrumental. Drawing on classical music’s ability to tell a story, Fenn is definitely able to tell an intimate tale of heartbreak both musically and lyrically. Take a bow Mr Fenn.
