Port Cities & Emma-Lee: I Still See You At Parties

A potent collaboration results in a catchy pop meets R&B confection.

Port Cities & Emma-Lee: I Still See You At Parties (turtlemusik): This new track is already grabbing plenty of attention, though it's sound has likely come as a surprise to fans of Port Cities. That East Coast group began as a roots-oriented trio comprising three talented singer/songwriters, Dylan Guthro, Carleton Stone, and Breagh McKinnon. The group earned multiple awards, #1 spots on the CBC and Spotify charts, and garnered over 9 million streams, prior to McKinnon's exit at the end of 2019.

Guthro and Stone are continuing as a duo, and, judging by this cut, venturing into different territory, and here they have teamed up with a stylistically eclectic pop singer/songwriter, Emma-Lee. The Toronto-raised, Nashville-based artist adds her bright voice to I Still See You at Parties, a tune that explores the common dilemma posed by running into an ex at social events. The contrasting male and female vocals underscore the theme nicely, while the sound on the Guthro-produced track has a definite R&B/hip-hop feel, bolstered by the mixing of Julio “mixedbyoso” Garzon (Pusha T, Fat Joe) and mastering by Riley Bell (Daniel Caesar). 


Short and sweet (2.40), this does whet the appetite for more from Port Cities.
