Three months on from its debut, Emily King‘s “Distance” sounds even more stunningly gorgeous with time. The New York native released the song as a free download back in January, her soothing voice flowing with sentimental, poetic lyrics which stick in the mind, and now follows through with a colourful split-screen video directed by Paul Jung. It’s simple, clean, quirky and makes for a charming visual accompaniment – watch above and purchase “Distance” on iTunes.

Information is scarce on what Emily currently has up her sleeve but this surely spells out a new project on the way, and we can’t wait. In the meantime, newbies to Ms. King should dip back into her debut album, East Side Story (2007), and her 2011 Seven EP.
