Emma Danelon on what the EP means to her:
This EP is the most important project I have done so far. Ipnosi is a liberation from all the struggles and obstacles in my growth and I feel like it’s the strongest project I have ever come up with. These struggles sometimes left me in a state of “hypnosis” where I couldn’t think straight or I was extremely affected by external factors to the point that these situations left me powerless or “hypnotised”. This is the reason for the name.
