Redhook – Tourist

Today’s track of the day comes from Redhook with single Tourist!

Redhook’s single Tourist is awesome!

Emmy said: “I wrote the lyrics and top-line for ‘Tourist’ in the middle of our tour with In Hearts Wake last year while going through a breakup of a two-year relationship. But it was more than just a breakup; it was a grueling process of digging the shrapnel of two years’ worth of nuclear love bombing out of my heart and processing the shattering revelation that this person who had so aggressively and relentlessly professed to love me, and who had worked so hard to sell me on the dream of a happy future together, had been lying and cheating the entire time. So this is my Olivia Rodrigo moment, the pour-your-guts-out breakup anthem, the song I wrote for myself to stay strong, walk away, and not get lured back in by any more lies or emotional manipulations.”
