In the realm of folk and soft pop, Emma Foley’s “Spider” emerges as a delicate yet powerful single, showcasing the talent and depth of this 19-year-old singer-songwriter. Released amidst anticipation, this track is a testament to Foley’s skill and artistry, drawing listeners into her world with its introspective lyrics and captivating melody.

Raised in both the Chicago suburbs and rural Wisconsin, Foley’s musical journey began early, surrounded by the constant singing of her siblings and the influence of a musical household. Her involvement in theater and choir during middle school laid the foundation, but it was in high school that Foley truly found her voice, teaching herself guitar and piano and beginning to write songs based on her personal experiences.

“Spider,” in particular, stands out as a poignant example of Foley’s songwriting prowess. Inspired by a poem about a spider with ten legs, eight broken, the song delves into the analogy of mental-health struggles, likening them to a spider feeling trapped in a shoe. It’s a deeply relatable concept, highlighting the universal need for rest and self-compassion in the midst of life’s chaos.

Musically, “Spider” is an easy listen, with a guitar melody that weaves effortlessly through the song, complementing Foley’s vocals beautifully. Her vocal range is impressive, adding depth and emotion to the lyrics. The chorus, in particular, is a standout moment, showcasing Foley’s ability to craft a memorable and impactful hook.

Clocking in at 3 minutes and 43 seconds, “Spider” is a concise yet impactful track that leaves a lasting impression. It’s no surprise that this song has become a standout for Foley, especially considering she has only two songs out at the moment. With “Spider,” Emma Foley has established herself as an artist to watch, offering a glimpse into her unique sound and storytelling ability.
