One of the really interesting releases of 24th July 2020 was Firecracker by Emilia Quinn. The young artist has received quite a lot of good feedback in her home country. In line with that, her press kit states powerhouse vocals and an own unique tone. After listening to her 2020 song Mistakes, I just felt to focus on her EP on that New Music Friday.

Emilia Quinn – Firecracker – Track by Track
The four track EP lasts 12 minutes.
1. Ready Right Now
There were these two words I mentioned – powerhouse vocal and very unique tone. Ready Right Now is the door opener to the Firecracker world – and, yeah, these words are definitely not wrong! The song, even thought it does not use too many melodic elements, feels like a blast. Love that.
2. Nothing to Lose
Nothing to Lose is a bit softer. I wouldn’t call it a ballad, as Quinn’s voice is still roaring with a lot of power, but at least it has less of that “musical hurricane” feeling. Like it!
Drunk is my favorite track on the album. It feels like the perfect mixture of the two tracks before: A lot of power, but also very melodic. You just love to listen to it. Cool one.
The cheecky chorus feels a bit like a nursery rhyme, but after a slow start, the very rhythmic and rocking track is finally another power song. Hard to imagine that this girl does it the slow way.

Emilia Quinn – Firecracker – My View
I was really curious about this one – and i just have to say: well done, Emilia. The songs are impressing, you deliver just what you promise to the people: straight, honest, powerful songs. In this compact EP episode of four songs, it is really good – I am a bit afraid that her music becomes monotonous – any moment on these twelve minutes which has a touch of a romantic moment, for example, turns into quite powerful music. Let’s see. You did the second EP step – and you did it pretty well!
