Leading up to the release of her album, Emily King made appearances on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, CBS This Morning (including an interview with Anthony Mason). The album was featured as an NPR First Listen, who called it “a precise-yet-fluid blend of ’80s pop and rock, contemporary R&B and light jazz touches that, together, reveal a starry-eyed earnestness.” Scenery also received critical acclaim from the likes of NPR, The New York Times, Pitchfork, Billboard, Chicago Tribune, and more.

Praise for Emily King:

“..an irresistible piece of anthemic R&B that captures the retro-cinematic quality of that first drive and the breathless feeling of greeting something new…flawless in its execution, every element a reminder of the joy through mastery and care that is King’s own.” – NPR Music

“Next level sass” Pitchfork

“One of the best songwriters around at the moment.” – BBC’s Radio 1

“a dash of bouncy ’80s-sounding synths while maintaining her signature stripped-down sound.” – The New York Times

“…King lays plain her additional intention to make this an intensely personal album: a synthy and soulful pop cut that finds her stretching her voice to rarely seen heights…” – Chicago Tribune

“Unreal talent. In complete awe of this girl. Thank you for the music.” – Sam Smith

“I. Love. Her. Voice” – Justin Timberlake
