Los Angeles based artist Emmy Wildwood is set to release a new EP called All My Blood, and ahead of its release, The 405 is pleased to premiere her brand new song, 'Everything Hurts.'

Building from past songs like the haunting 'Scream' and the shimmering ballad 'Down Down,' 'Everything Hurts' feels like the moment when an artist who has spent years honing and refining her sound has finally arrived. A sweeping pop song that touches on the themes of strength and empowerment, it's the boldest sounding music she's released so far.

Though it has all of the qualities you would expect from radio-friendly pop music, it doesn't suffer from being so overly polished that it feels compressed and lifeless, as so many pop songs often do. Instead, Wildwood favors a more organic approach that allows the hooks and harmonies room to expand and flourish, particularly that soaring and tugging guitar solo which is so recognizable it almost feels like it belongs in just about every classic pop song. Though it draws equally from Beach House and Cocteau Twins to shades of Chromatics, Wildwood turns those strains of familiarity into something refreshing and thrilling.

As she explained for The 405, 'Everything Hurts' is "about the moment that survival instincts kick in during a crisis... we're taught as women to constantly withstand everything in all of our relationships, romantic or otherwise, so things have to be really bad to get the strength to fight for fair treatment and justice. Because we're taught not to speak out, it's in those rock bottom situations that we tend to find or remember our power."

Considering the much-needed shift our current culture is undergoing, it's a reassuring anthem for women, in particular, finding the courage to finally speak up and speak out. Regardless of your struggles, lines like "when everything hurts/when we're at our worst" are easy to identify with. It's somehow comforting and like any good pop song, it acts as a salve when it's needed most. Listen below.

All My Blood is due out this spring.
