Track Of The Day: The Charlatans - 'Emilie'

An absolute stunner taken from the new album 'Modern Nature'. There aren't many bands who have been through as much turmoil as The Charlatans, and there are even fewer that have managed to survive. Yet after over 25 years after their formation, they are back with one of their strongest pieces of work to date. ‘Modern Nature’ is their first album since 2010's 'Who We Touch' and the first to be released since the sad death of drummer Jon Brookes in 2012. But rather than dwell on their bad luck, the band have once again triumphed over tragedy with a stellar set of tracks coloured with melancholic sunshine, soul vibes and subtle shades of funk. In their own words: “songs that made us happy.” Read the full album review HERE. It's hard not to fall in love with the mysterious and beautiful 'Emilie', another helping of classic Charlatans that easily stands alongside any of their best loved songs.
