“Emily Grove‘s debut EP, Way Across The Sea, was well worth the wait. Grove, who’d been performing within the Asbury music scene for years without an official release, dropped this record in August to much acclaim, earning an Asbury Music Award For Best Female Acoustic Act on its behalf. The title track, a tale of love eroded by the oceanic waters that separate two hearts, sets the scene for this ghostly soundscape, not of spooky subject matter, but in the way a melody crooned in the Boardwalk songstress’ soulful vocal styling haunts a listener’s psyche, including such tunes as “Today” and “Falling.” However, the cream of this acoustic guitar-led crop of Folk-Rock is a number dubbed “Flea” that describes in detail the toxicity of a parasitic relationship, a common thread in one of SIMGE’s favorite emotionally distressed compilations of the year.”
