EMMI IIDA unveiled her latest single ‘Higher Self’ on the 1st of February via EFG Records Oy. The track features a smooth vocal passage from US-based singer-songwriter and producer Peachkit. Based in Finland, EMMI IIDA is a multi-talented visual artist, holistic interior architect & musician. EMMI IIDA has received support from distinguished publications and stations such as METAL Magazine, CLASH Magazine, Wonderland Magazine, NOCTIS Mag, Earmilk, BBC 6’s Craig Charles, RTÉ 2FM, as well as securing her an interview with MTV Finland.

Born in Hollola, Finland, EMMI IIDA began playing the piano at 5 years old. She spent her early years in a musical elementary school, singing in a choir and in an acapella band, performing her first solo in front of a crowd at 9. This early exposure to music had her singing in front of the TV and making her own songs constantly. In her search to continually create and express in unlimited forms, she founded her own company EFG Productions Oy, as well as EFG Records Oy, a record label focusing on drawing out holistic wellbeing with healing frequencies.

‘Higher Self’ takes you on a meditative journey with EMMI IIDA’s smooth calming vocals; the song truly does take you to a higher place. Peachkit provides a sultry, meditative rap verse that harmoniously blends the soothing power of meditation with the rhythmic flow of rap music all while inspiring the listener to reach their highest potential.

EMMI IIDA had this to say about ‘Higher Self’ _”What if you keep worrying for your past, living in the past, wondering if there’s no point in life, only failure? What if nothing seems to make sense, just mistakes after mistakes? Your inner self, your higher self, comes to remind you that those experiences and so called failures are all moulding you, preparing you to be ready for the future you who you will become when you continue listening to your gut feelings, things that excite you, following in the path of your dreams. ‘Higher Self’ is about the connection with the divine, balancing the frequencies of our crown chakra, finding that oneness within.” _
