Emily Nicole Green, singer-songwriter based in the heart of New York City, unveiled her latest single, “Thief,” as a sneak peek into her upcoming EP, ‘Outrunning the Animal,’ which is set to drop on October 30th across streaming platforms and on vinyl.
“Thief,” released on September 8th, is an emotionally charged song that might just compel you to pull over if you’re listening while driving. Among the five songs featured on her forthcoming EP, “Thief” stands out as a raw and revealing masterpiece, seamlessly weaving elements of Jazz, Folk, and Pop into its Americana ballad, creating a timeless and emotionally stirring composition.
The song delves into the theme of abandonment or rejection by someone deeply loved, extending an invitation to cease self-abandonment in response. It explores the notion that contradictory truths can coexist within an individual, urging listeners to make space for both actual experiences and unmet expectations.
“Thief” takes a profound journey through the process of recognizing and validating emotional pain while also acknowledging the role our own responses play in compounding that suffering.
It encourages us to confront the impact that those who have hurt us have had on our lives, emphasizing the importance of not oversimplifying complex individuals into one-dimensional villains. Instead, it advocates for embracing the intricacies and complexities of human experiences.
