No Hope For Love is the 5th single from Emma and the Fragments and completes the the EP ‘Smile ‘Til It Hurts’
The song delivers a driving back beat complete with rhythmic indie guitars and catchy melodies. Working perfectly with Emma’s soaring and uplifting crystal clear vocals, their innocence and purity allows the listener to hang on to her every word.
The song describes a failing relationship using the dark imagery of a bird dying, which is brought to life in the official lyric video. The juxtaposition of the song’s meaning with the memorable and upbeat feel of the track draws the listener much closer to her story.
No Hope For Love is the final single release from the EP Smile ‘Til It Hurts. The EP takes you through a roller coaster of emotions from anxiety, despair, jealousy, joy and loss and the title reflects how a smile can reveal happiness or hide pain.
Emma and the Fragments are an energetic female-fronted indie rock band based in East London. Formed in 2012 by founding member Emma, she leads the band on vocals with Donn on guitar, Jon on drums and latest addition Jonny on bass.
Emma and the Fragments have made a name for themselves with their hard-edged indie rock and released 4 singles across 2021 to critical acclaim – Circle of Concern, Part of the Wildlife, Back to Blue and Proper Everything from the forthcoming EP ‘Smile ‘Til It Hurts’
Inspired by 90s indie rock the band take their influences one step further, exploring a multitude of styles from pop to metal, and display a sound that at times is both dark and brooding or light and fun, complete with catchy melodies and driving guitars. Their music would be equally at home in the playlists of both the most ardent The Cure fan, or a serious lover of Circa Waves, Foals or The Mysterines.
In addition to last year’s single releases they have signed a record deal with London based label Regent Street Records, hosted their own sold out day festival ‘FRAGFEST’ and have recently won the Wigwam Radio Best Indie Rock Act 2021 Award against fierce competition.
2022 is set to be even bigger for the band with new releases and live shows coming across the year
