Avalon Emerson announces debut album, shares shimmering Cocteau Twins-inspired single ‘Hot Evening’

Avalon Emerson has announced the release of her debut album for her new musical project, as well as sharing new single ‘Hot Evening’.

The self-titled record ‘Avalon Emerson & The Charm’ will be released on April 28 via her Another Dove label. Upon announcement, the US producer and songwriter has also shared the latest single, the shimmering ‘Hot Evening’.

“The sonic inspiration comes from somewhere between Todd Edwards, the Magnetic Fields, and the Chordettes,” she said of the track. “Unlike ‘Sandrail’, where disparate sketches slid together into a final version quickly, ‘Hot Evening’ hovered around 75 per cent done for over a year, ebbing and flowing into different shades of complete until the final touches came together right at deadline.”

Following a period on the electronic circuit, including remixing works for Christine and The Queens, Slowdive and Robyn, the California-born musician was inspired by the likes of Arthur Russell, Cocteau Twins, The Magnetic Fields and more for this pop-focused LP. Her last full release was in 2020 for DJ-Kicks mix series.

It follows the announcement of the project earlier this year and the release of the project’s debut single ‘Sandrail Silhouette’ in January. See the full tracklist for the album below.
