Written over a two year period, Emily Jane White‘s sixth album “Immanent Fire” recognizes our moment at the precipice of species annihilation, as she guides her listener through the feeling of life on a planet at the brink of destruction.
Acknowledging these conditions in which we live, White offers what she has been best suited to on all of her albums: an exploration of the internal world.
“”Washed Away” is about how we are severed from our natural world, how pervasive communication through technology dominates so much our lives. This song speaks to the creative importance of spending time in nature and how it must be seen and valued. It’s a relationship. I feel this disconnect is directly linked to the climate crisis and ongoing destruction of the planet”, explains Emily Jane White.
