On The Table Read Magazine, “the best entertainment magazine in the UK“, Don’t Tell My Mother is the debut EP from London-based artist EMINZADA.
The six-track debut EP from EMINZADA, Don’t Tell My Mother, perfectly encapsulates the artist’s entire identity, transitioning from indie pop to dark electronic. His music is representative of the metamorphosis of the artist’s personal and musical journey, heavily influenced by his Azerbaijani heritage.
EMINZADA is a complex artist with an elite style and strong outlook. Initially from Baku City, Azerbaijan, EMINZADA has grown up with diversity at all times, living between Azerbaijan, Turkey and the US, prior to taking his work to London. His music explores concepts of camp, lust, and escapism, paying homage to his classical background in music composition. It also represents the freedom of artistic expression, the musical culture and futurism of his home country, and his Azerbaijani heritage shines brightly throughout.
Don’t Tell My Mother
His new EP, Don’t Tell My Mother, features six songs exploring EMINZADA’s evolution. This journey is reflected in the genre as well as the lyrics. This metamorphosis demonstrates how EMINZADA has matured into a more confident artist by moving from indie pop to dark, electronic pop.
Don’t Tell My Mother perfectly encapsulates the artist’s entire identity, drawing heavily on his Azerbaijani heritage. He explained that he has experimented with incorporating Middle Eastern musical elements into his music, such as using traditional instruments, incorporating Arabic or Persian vocal styles, or blending Middle Eastern rhythms and melodies with modern electronic production techniques. This has the potential to produce a brand-new hybrid sound that reflects not only his own creative vision but also the cultural influences that have shaped his musical identity.
The strong bond that the EMINZADA shares with his mother served as the inspiration for the EP’s title. He explained that he was going through genre and style changes through the writing of this EP, figuring out how to become comfortable with himself. However, he kept saying, “Don’t tell my mother!'” as he moved further into unfamiliar territory.
Songs On Don’t Tell My Mother
“Bloodline” delves deeper into his relationship with his mother. The artist admits that his life choices cannot be controlled by his family, despite their close bond, and the song touches on the desire to live authentically as yourself, despite the concerns of your parents.
“Aries, Soulmate” is inspired by his astrological beliefs. EMINZADA explained that when two Aries people meet one another, it can prompt a dynamic and energizing relationship that is energetic, exciting, and full of a shared desire for adventure. However, it is essential for both parties to be aware of their individual tendencies for dominance and competition, and to collaborate in order to achieve equilibrium and mutual respect.
Fan-favorite “Beautiful Long Hair” is written in the Azerbaijani musical scale Chargah, and the mysterious Middle Eastern elements perfectly complement the contemporary alt-pop production. In a kaleidoscope of vivid instrumentation, the track investigates the craving for individuals with wonderful long hair, and the apparently unequivocal confidence that seems to accompany it.
The person you’re afraid to become is the focus of “Sociopath.” According to EMINZADA. he met so many sociopaths in his life; their toxic character and demanding attitude was a part of his day to day existence, and he was so drained at the end of the day that he couldn’t continue with his normal activities because he felt like a source of energy for them. “Sociopath” continues the exploration of his truly idysocratic discourses with electronically charged synthesisers, a blaring bassline, and echoing vocals that were brought to life and recorded by a mellow choir from a Hampstead church.
The final song on the EP, “Beggar,” is another one in which the artist tries to raise awareness about manipulative and toxic men. Lyrically, this song serves as a warning about manipulation, which can take many forms, such as using money and sex to control you. Influenced by the musical aesthetics of Venezuelan musician Arca and Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.”
Disabled LGBTQIA+ Community
The focus of EMINZADA’s work is his support for the disabled LGBTQIA+ community, shining a brighter light on artists who have struggled to find their place in their community and have faced adversity in their lives. EMINZADA is not only an ally and advocate for this community, but also a member of it because he manages his own disability through Pectus Excavatum; a disability that can be devastating for singers in particular. EMINZADA intends to establish the “Emin Eminzada Foundation,” a charitable organization with the mission of assisting musical artists in achieving their objectives.
