Stephanie: New single from Emily 7

Fresh from a successful UK tour, local indie band Emily 7 recently released their new single ‘Stephanie’, replete with distorted guitars and an Oasis-indebted pomp.

The four-piece, consisting of Jobstown brothers Scott and Kyle Bellew, Ballyfermot man Brendan Carrig, and Daniel Clarke, showcased the song during their UK tour and it was rapturously received by fans.

“The track got a great response on the tour,” drummer Scott Bellew told The Echo.

“We played in London, Manchester and Wales and it felt so good to be back playing gigs with actual people singing and dancing. We’re already planning the next tour!

“I really think people will enjoy this track. It’s an extremely different track to our previous releases – in a good way, that is.”

Out now on all streaming platforms, the band describes ‘Stephanie’ as a “fast paced indie-punk stomper with some ’70s influenced vocal shouts”.

“I think ‘Stephanie’ is about that whole idea of jealousy and all of the feelings that go along with it,” frontman Kyle Bellew added.

“Although the central theme of the song is jealousy, it’s not a soppy or downbeat song by any means – if anything, it’s the exact opposite.

“It’s a loud, straight-to-the-point rock’n’roll song. The song literally sounds like four friends in a garage playing their instruments at full volume, which is what I really like about it. And it’s always fun to play live, so hopefully people like what they hear.”

The band’s music previously caught the attention of former Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher, who gave a shout out to their last single ‘Somebody’ on Twitter last June, and encouraged the band to “keep it up”.

‘Somebody’ clocked up over 25,000 streams on Spotify and it reached the number one spot on the iTunes chart, and the band is hoping to build on that success with the release of ‘Stephanie’.
