New Zealand singer and songwriter Emma Stenbeck has released her latest single, “Anymore.” The track has been published on the Li’l Dog Records New Zealand music label. Sonorous, poppy, and laced with the upbeat old-school synth sounds of the eighties and nineties, “Anymore” is another example of Stenbeck’s crystal-clear, heartfelt singing style, and of the continuing quality of Li’l Dog NZ releases in general.
The tone of “Anymore” is brighter than the bluesy, jazzy undertones of her previous single, “Something About You.” Stenbeck herself speaks of this difference saying, “I love to sing such a broad range of music and have idols in all genres so I am so happy to be able to showcase the different sides to me and my voice.”
Stenbeck has been lauded for the personal slant she gives her lyrics, adding character and soul to a genre populated by nonsensical, throw-away words.
“Anymore is about that feeling you get when you are questioning whether a relationship is still working,” she writes, “and what it will mean to either stay in it or move on. I think everyone has experienced the moments that are expressed in this song.”
“Something About You” kept the number one spot on the iTunes Vocal Chart for two weeks. It maintained the 14th slot on the New Zealand Singles chart overall for the same amount of time. This track, along with her new single, “Anymore,” herald the upcoming release of her debut EP record, the title of which has not yet been published. Li’l Dog Records has stated that for this new album, “32 tracks have been worked on in the course of recording – with the only the very best tracks being selected for release.”
“Anymore” by Emma Stenbeck was recorded, engineered, and produced by mPHATic for Li’l Dog Records, and mastered by Tekram Ltd. in association with Philthy at Taufactor in New Zealand. It is available online worldwide beginning 7 July 2014.
