Led by singer and songwriting genius Emil Hewitt, New York’s Emil & Friends don’t fall easily into one musical genre. This is because they do it all, and they package it perfectly without ever breakin’ a sweat. So, whether it’s whimsical synth rock, classic jazz or funky disco, at the end of the day you’re in for a genre-bending treat that’s always built atop a strong pop foundation. Take for example “Rain Check,” with its punch of quirky fun and theatrics, or “Royal Oats,” and its cool electric vibes. The band’s always surprising and never disappointing.
