Emma Lamarre who goes by the name TAXI, released her stunning debut EP Intimacy Issues in September which has been receiving rave reviews since. Working with Producer, Bernard Frazer (Church of Trees, Black and White, GNT, News from the Roof), the two have created a 5 track body of work that sonically ranges from Portishead to Lily Allen and Lana Del Rey.
Intimacy Issues is a dark pop record that Lamarre claims is her “most inexpensive form of therapy” to date. Though lyrically TAXI touches on mental illness, substance abuse, sex and emotional detachment, Intimacy Issues is a record where vulnerability and an ability to laugh at oneself are crucial.
It is now available on streaming/download services, as well as bandcamp.
