Californian singer-songwriter Margaret Glaspy has been easing her way into the music industry for over four years now since her EP ‘If and When’ was self-released in 2012. But, with the arrival of her debut album ‘Emotions & Math’, the world is finally beginning to sit up and take notice.
‘Emotions & Math’ is Glaspy’s first full studio album, self-produced and already causing a buzz. Its name sums up an epiphany she had while making the record; “In a lot of ways, it’s kind of how I operate,” says Glaspy. “I’ve always considered myself a free spirit, someone who goes with the flow, but actually I’m not exactly like that. This record really taught me that I’m super analytical and process-driven. I think they really do go together, emotions and math. Nobody is just one thing.”
A clean, brief, and guitar-driven pop record, Glaspy truly wows with ‘Emotions & Math’, with The Guardian hailing it as “a fabulous miniature […] that gets better every time you listen to it”, awarding it a respectable 4/5. With influences ranging from Bill Withers to Elliott Smith, from Weezer’s ‘Pinkerton’ to Rage Against the Machine, the 26-year-old songwriter focuses her talents into fiercely raw, guitar-driven pop songs that’s evident in ‘Emotions & Math’.s
Previous to the release of her debut, Margaret Glaspy has toured with Rayland Baxter, Lucius, and Milk Carton Kids. She’s on track for greatness this year, and you should absolutely make sure you’re a part of it.
