Emma-Jean Thackray

neimënster

Bandleader, multi-instrumentalist and producer, Emma-Jean Thackray was born and raised in Yorkshire but is today a resident of Catford, south-east London. Her 2020 EPs Um Yang and Rain Dance marked Thackray out as a standard-bearer of a spiritually-minded, dancefloor-angled take on jazz that stood at a slight remove from the broader UK scene. Her debut album, Yellow, feels exactly like the sort of thing we’ve been longing for over the last months: a transcendent, human, shared experience. It draws glowing lines between ‘70s jazz fusion and P-funk, the cosmic invocations of Sun Ra and Alice Coltrane and the gorgeous orchestration of the Beach Boys’ Pet Sounds.

I wanted the whole thing to sound like a psychedelic trip - you put on the first track, it takes you through this intense thing for almost an hour, and then you emerge on the other side transformed.
