English indie/alt band EMF have shared the video for their latest single “Sparks and Flashes“.
The song is part of our current playlist and is taken from their album ‘GO GO SAPIENS‘, their first since 1995, released back in April. Buy it here.
The band described Sparks and Flashes as: “a song about the journey of life that we as a band have been travelling on over the last three decades. The best of times and the saddest of times losing close friends along the way. A song about time passing in the blink of an eye and how we should live it to the fullest.”
British dance-rock quintet EMF formed in Cinderford, England in October 1989. All five original members were veterans of the local music scene before founding EMF, whose name supposedly stood for “Epsom Mad Funkers”.
Their debut album, SCHUBERT DIP, came out in May 1991. It was certified platinum (over a million copies sold) in the US in September 1991.
In 1992, EMF returned with the Unexplained EP and the much darker full-length effort STIGMA; STIGMA peaked at #19 on the UK charts, and the band toured extensively to promote it. It produced hit singles and EMF live set favorites, “They’re Here” and “It’s You.”
The band released their final full-length album of new material in 1995 with CHA CHA CHA. After a successful European tour, they teamed up with comics Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer on a cover of the Monkees’ “I’m a Believer,” which reached number 2 on the UK charts.
