In the past 12 months, Emma Louise has sold out shows across Australia, signed international record deals, and generally let the world know that she has arrived and is ready to give you a taste of her considerable songwriting and performing talents. We haven't heard much in the past couple of months though, so we're excited to hear about the release of Boy, the first single from her debut album which will drop early next year, and the accompanying single launch tour to boot.

The swaying, mid-paced song shows that there's a real solid foundation to her songwriting, plenty of depth and broader talent than some may expect. It's an alluring first taste that will make you very excited for the album's ensuing release.

In the meantime, catch her on the following dates alongside Argentina:

Thursday 29 June – Northcote Social Club, Melbourne
Thursday July 5 – The SoundLounge, Gold Coast
Friday 6 July Tanks Arts Centre, Cairns (with Jordan Ireland (The Middle East) - Argentina not appearing)
Wednesday 11 July Black Bear Lodge, Brisbane
Thursday 12 July – Black Bear Lodge, Brisbane
Friday 20 July – Oxford Art Factory, Sydney
