♫♪  Emily Reo - “Spell”

Emily Reo, witchy woman

As we approach this spookiest of seasons, when the days are haunted and ghosts are afoot; as we prepare for the Hallow’s Eve black magic which shall be summoned, it is now time to embrace the witching hour. Fortunately for all you creeps and ghouls, Emily Reo has provided us with just such a “Spell” with which to draw down the moon, conjuring a potent emotive hex from across these cursed moors. From within her dark autotune shroud, Reo allows us to invoke and purge our most inward, plaintive feelings (if this was still a thing you’d better believe “I don’t feel anything/I don’t heal anything” would be everyone’s AIM away message for the rest of the year). Though the track has already acquired plenty of internet love since emerging last week as if from some uncanny fog, don’t forget that the Spell 10” (with b-side “Stronger Swimmer”) arrives upon this physical plane October 28, just in time for you to place it among the offerings of blood upon your altar. Do you dare??

Spell may be purchased now through Orchid Tapes. And for those who live in NYC, Emily Reo will also be performing (as Carly Rae Jepsen!) at Shae Stadium’s Halloween show. Stream “Spell” below. Boo!
