Bi-coastal songwriter and producer Emmett Kai unveils his latest single "Stick To My Guns," marking the fourth installment in a growing collection of tracks planned for gradual release throughout the year. With an ear for ethereal effects and catchy melodies, Emmett mixes powerful 808 beats with assorted ear-candy and a low-key, soul-drenched vocal style.

This ambitious indie-pop gem combines raw production chops with a slick sense of dynamic nuance, building an emotional, self-reinforcing catharsis from a moment of steely personal resolve. Emmett Kai masterfully brings together a collection of hooks delivered via punchy electronic drums, sparse layers of vocal harmony, and the diverse, chameleon-like presence of electric guitar. "Stick To My Guns" is an uplifting, summer-ready electro-jam that leaves no doubt: great things are ahead for this young Brooklyn artist.

I stick to my guns
That's why I have these enemies
Over the hills and far away
You can't see

Emmett's next live performance at The Sultan Room in Brooklyn, NY - supporting Future Generations - has been postponed until July. This song is featured on our CHILL Angeles playlist.
