On the Radar: EMA

Erika M. Anderson aka EMA is a South Dakotan with Viking blood. She claims lineage to Erik Bloodaxe, but prefers to wield an axe of a different sort. Thank goodness for that, because who wants to get decapitated at a rock show?

All fun aside, the track, Milkman, is pretty bad ass. The video for Milkman is a little weird (but remember, we like weird), and may give those who grew up in the 80’s flashbacks to the MTV of yesteryear.

EMA is touring with Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. for part of this summer in support of her upcoming release, Past Life Martyred Saints LP.
