Emery Pulse – “Gift Box”


A peppy pop track with ample ’80s nostalgia, “Gift Box” comes from Florida-based artist Emery Pulse. Playfully chiming synths and reflective guitars complement Emery’s congenial vocal presence to start, the effervescent “gift box, anything you want,” hook succeeding with a twinkling allure. Chris Camozzi’s playful guitar jangles add enjoyably to the crisp production, courtesy of Brett Brown (Ray Charles, John Lee Hooker). A guitar solo around 02:30 bolsters the track’s satiating conclusion. Fans of ’80s pop with playfully effervescent qualities are likely to be enamored with “Gift Box.”

“As a fan of 80’s pop, I strive to bring a retro flare to new music. ‘Gift Box’ contains 80’s pop snares and DX7-esque chimes wrapped in modern elements,” Emery says.

This track and others released in December can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of December 2021’ Spotify playlist.
