Emily Daccarett ‘s “Love Chain”


Emily takes synth-pop music to the sky with a stunning wall of sound! Beautiful synths, heavenly guitars, and an irresistible 80’s sing along melody!

Emily, welcome back to VQS! Tell us a little bit about you and your music.
I’m a singer/songwriter and fashion designer. I began my career with fashion, fortunately, I found a way to introduce my love of music into my work by writing original songs with my friend and film composer, S. Peace Nistades, for my fashion shows and short fashion films. After a while, I decided to take some time off to work on my craft as a musician and to learn how to produce myself. It was during this time of trial and error that I began to new write songs that developed into my EP “Cannibal.” It was a departure from the 70’s retro french pop style we had started with my brand to an upbeat 80’s synth-pop. The way I approach my music is similar to my design process. I start with a concept or mood and begin to flesh out the story, this process determines the style and influences I use and gives me the freedom to change musical styles.

“Hope keeps us going and pushes back the fears that keep us from love.” – Emily Daccarett

Congrats on the release! What was your inspiration when you were writing this song?
Love Chain was going to be originally a holiday song. Klara and I recorded and uploaded this version on youtube for our friends and families. There was something catchy about this song and I kept going back to it. I called Peace up to see if he would be interested in working with me on developing this song into something else. By taking out the holiday cheer elements in the production, we saw that the song’s core message is about love and the hope of being in love. We began to play with these themes and the roles that our vocals would play in this song. I start out as more playful and flirty, while Klara is a bit more hesitant and careful, these roles switch by the end of the song. 
What is your vision for this song? What lessons would you like to impart with your audience?
I wanted to give people hope. To love is not simple and it changes, constantly evolving, which is why we need hope. Hope keeps us going and pushes back the fears that keep us from love. 
What is your favorite part of the song?
The bridge is my favorite part. Love Chain did not have a bridge originally, so it was the last part we recorded. I was finding it hard to write lyrics for this new part and looking down at all this stuff I had written down, I began to cross it out, leaving a few words on the page. I got up to the mic, closed my eyes and started to sing what was in my heart. Finally, we had our bridge that no longer felt forced but now shows the switch between being confident and playful, to honest and vulnerable.
Anything else we should know about it? Future releases? Upcoming shows?
Currently, I doing some covers of Spanish songs. I’m working on a follow-up album to my EP, it’s still too early to say anything about it, except that I’m super excited about the direction we are taking.
