The texas-based Indie pop band, West Ember, have recently released a new song titled Create Art, to raise awareness on abusive relationships and also help victims gather the confidence to seek help.
Create Art chronicles self-expression manifested in harmful ways and was launched alongside a music video that follows a chain of physical and mental abuse, symbolized lyrically by the act of painting.
West Ember was founded in the beautiful El Paso, Texas, by lead singer Alex Bird, guitarist Amadeus, and Jake Piñedo on drums. The indie-pop trio are widely appreciated for their intimate and heartfelt singer-songwriting talents, as well as the upbeat and welcoming energy they possess.
In October 2016, West Ember won a city songwriting competition with their song Luna. The band used the prize money to help fund the production of their first EP – Birds & Lions, which they debuted in 2019.
The songs Create Art and Living Better Days (the other track also recently released), are snippets from their upcoming new EP which fans can hardly wait to listen to.
While all the band’s released music can be found on streaming platforms including Apple Music and Spotify, West Ember also runs an active Instagram page where they upload performance videos from gigs, etc., and thrill fans to the beautiful singing and lyrics that characterize their art.
