When she was 22, Jinnai Juri moved from Tokyo to Boston, Massachusetts, and started down the road to becoming Emergency Tiara. Now the NYC based femme-fatale is making her own mark and becoming an artist you need to get to know in 2018.
The kind of amorphous musician who can shift from orchestral pop to vintage Motown in a heartbeat, her songs are playful yet deftly crafted, as you can hear on the vibrant new single ‘Explode’. On the track, Juri says: “Explode is a song about a someone in your life who you care about and love so much, but also have to be always careful not to upset – an experience everyone can relate to.”
