London-based Polish/Swiss artist Emilia Anastazja has unveiled her latest EP Flower House via Young and Aspiring. The record’s highlight single and title track “Flower House” comes with a chromatic video where Emilia takes us on a surreal trip. Sprayed with the shades of 90s, “Flower House” is a celestial synthpop piece layered with smoky R&B elements as Emilia reminisces an old apartment she used to live in before it got torn down to be replaced by an overpriced building. 

Speaking on the release of new single “Flower House”, Emilia said “The lyrics are talking about my reflections and memories of an apartment block that I used to live in with my best friends which was demolished in front of my eyes. It was a whole community of artists living there and we always had an open door for everyone and the rent was almost for free. The house was demolished because the state decided to build some more overpriced modern apartments there. This home holds a special place in my memory and is often a place I look back to as the last real place I could call home. I wanted to express both my anger and my fantasy to ‘Burn’ down what now stands in its place.”
