Off the back of her show-stopping performance at New York’s ‘Pride Fest’ last weekend, Emergency Tiara announces the release of her brand new single ‘Oh Mama Dear’ on July 6.
Showcasing her signature, vintage-inspired sound, the single is an instant feel-good classic. With the addition of darkened lyrics containing topics of family and hurt it makes for a perfect contrast to it’s poppy musicality as it sits alongside a black and white video of her live performance.
Emergency Tiara says: “When I got engaged to my boyfriend, my mother was fully against my relationship, which was devastating. I know she only wanted what was best for me, but she couldn’t understand how happy he made me feel. She finally came around a year later, just in time for our wedding but it reminded me how much it hurts to not be understood by the people closest to you in life.”
