Permanent VacationEmma Russack’s signature blend of wry humour, confessional lyrics and sparse instrumentation has made her a favourite of many for years.

On her new album Permanent Vacation, she comments on everything from the desire to escape to the seaside (Migration) to the toxic influence of social media (Body Goals). While this new material is notably less candid than that of her previous albums, Russack still has emotional pull as evidenced in the stunning Free Things and The Way, both of which featuring her voice accompanied by a wonderfully moving piano. Permanent Vacation is evidence of Russack’s progression as a songwriter, and much like her other albums, serves as the perfect companion to your existential crisis.

Permanent Vacation is out August 25 via Spunk.
