Emma Bieniewicz – “Space”


“Space” is a powerful, expansive track from Emma Bieniewicz, an artist from Grand Rapids, MI. “I put in the time so you can’t take it away,” the vocals let out to start, as lush guitars and subtle string-laden undercurrents play alongside a steady percussive pull.

The piano-forward balladry appears intermittently and with intimate charm, bolstered by Bieniewicz’s gorgeously escalating violin playing. A rousing assortment of strings, piano, and clanging percussion surrounds Bieniewicz’s now-impassioned vocals to conclude the effort with a stellar enduring.

Bieniewicz describes the track as “about putting yourself first and finding the joys in being alone. It’s about living in the present and not dwelling on the past. It is a song about making the most of the now.”

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of May 2023’ Spotify playlist.
