Daily Spinn: Emma Ohm Brings the Soul on ‘False Confidence’
“He loves me, he loves me not.”
“She loves me, she loves me not.”
We’ve all had that internal debate in our lives, haven’t we?
“Electric” Emma Ohm captures the anguish of this personal struggle in the smoothest, most soulful way possible, by dropping “False Confidence.” An expert blend of chill, lo-fi R&B vibe and powerful, jazz-influenced vocals, the single is for those who have ever found themselves wondering if they — or their lover — is who they claim to be in a relationship.
“This song is about a love that seems steady and full of promise, when really, each lover is full of doubt and not being honest with themselves or each other,” Ohm explained.
“False Confidence” was written alongside producer and pianist Ian McInroe, and came from a jam session where Ohm began to develop the lyrics and melody. McInroe started with a few simple chords, before evolving “False Confidence” into a dynamic neo-soul soundscape full of changes and smooth licks.
Indeed, McInroe was the perfect collaborator to help Ohm bring “False Confidence” to life.
“Coming from Berklee College of Music and having piano chops like no other, Ian is able to flex into the realm of producing, mixing, and co-writing,” Ohm said.
