"Emily Barker has a gift for great melodies"  - The Guardian  

“an album of spare, striking beauty” - Mojo ★★★★  

“…a kind of Australian equivalent of PJ Harvey’s Let England Shake” -  UNCUT 8/10 

“‘Hope’ is the thing with feathers – 

That perches in the soul – 

And sings the tune without the words – 

And never stops – at all…”Emily Dickinson 


The opening line of Emily Dickinson’s short poem ‘‘Hope’ is the thing with feathers’ inspired the central image of Emily Barker’s new single ‘Feathered Thing’, written while she navigated cumulative grief.
