Emma Elisabeth

Manic Pixie Dream Girl

The laid back tune “Manic Pixie Dream Girl” is far from laid back in its powerful message. Inspired by the manic pixie dream girl cliché where the girl is just there to help the man develop and change, it plants a false idea “that we are not the main character of our own story, but just a sidekick to someone else’s (a man). Excuse me?” Born in the backwaters of Nashville, the song makes use of floating organs, a blues rhythm and an otherworldly aura to confront this terrible misconception. Women, as New Statesman’s Laurie Penny argued, “deserve to be able to write our own stories rather than exist as supporting characters in the stories for men.” – “Amen to that,” says Emma Elisabeth.

Emma Elisabeth

You can take an artist out of Sweden. But you can’t take Sweden out of an artist. Living, walking, breathing and singing proof to this testimonial is Emma Elisabeth Dittrich, Berlin-based artist with the freewheeling spirit of the seventies and the northern sense of foreboding melancholy circulating through her sublimely crafted indie songs. After growing up surrounded by instruments, playing in various bands and majoring in vocal studies at prestigious Kulturama in Stockholm, Emma Elisabeth embraced the great wide open and traveled the world. She has been traveling and making music in London, Paris or the United States, where she was invited to play renowned SXSW festival, and she even toured Japan with one of her bands before she decided to settle in Berlin – temporarily, that is.
