Top Tracks: Emma Ballantine – Through Your Eyes

I’m always on the lookout for music that follows interesting and moving concepts, and Emma Ballantine’s latest EP Somebody’s Story is a perfect example, bringing together true tales from people around the globe. ‘Through Your Eyes’ shares the story of a 14-year-old boy with autism named James. Aimed at capturing the way he sees the world, it even features samples of his own music. The airy, expansive soundscape, the crystal clear vocals and the arresting lyrics make for one powerful track. Joining stories of true love and chance encounters, it rounds off the EP as a profound and emotive piece of music, portraying an important part of the human condition. It’s easy to speak your own mind, but it’s something all together more challenging to portray another person’s view of the world so delicately, and so beautifully.
