Yes, this single release by Blang is a chance to get in real early on Emily Capell's career as she seems to be headed towards stardom in 2016. She's one of the hot tips for big things next year if the buzz her latest demos have been receiving are anything to go by. She's had loads of airplay for said demos plus the excellent Who Killed Smiley Culture; her previous release on Blang.
Lego is actually Milk Kan's single but bringing in Emily's talents on this love gone wrong sort of modern pop song is a great idea. It's a clever song that manages to equate a relationship to playing with lego and how it eventually falls apart. It's a very cool song that is very easy to hear over and over again; always a good sign for a pop song. Emily's estuary-style voice sound a little bit grittier than Scrappy Hood's vocals which are a bit Mike Skinner in places.
The B-side in old fashioned parlance is Question This and is Milk Kan on their own. It's a great indie rap that nicks lines from everywhere from The Sound of music to Jonathan Richman and goes all over the modern malaise to ask who the Fuck is Banksy? It's all wrapped up in some very fly rhymes and a great organ-led backing. It's smart, knowing and well worth hearing.
