She really is great, like really.

I first caught Emmy the Great back in October during CMJ and was just enamored with her lilting British voice, folksy melodies and clever lyricism. She just released this video for "First Love". It's quite quotable and pays tribute to "Hallelujah" (the original Leonard Cohen version).

Emmy the Great's debut album comes on in the UK on February 9th. Sadly no word on a US release date yet.
