Allen Epley gives us an absolutely mesmerizing video for “The EMT “ which is on his debut solo album “Everything”
There is this wonderful almost mystical quality to both the song and video for “The EMT “
Of the track, Epley says, “The EMT” was laying around my folders for a few months and was called “Spider Rico Two” because it had been written around the same time and had a similar vibe as “Spider Rico” which I had finished earlier. I remember having a hard time finding my footing on this one until I just stopped fighting it and went with my original intentions and just kind of allowed it to be what it was. It all fell together when Mike Burns put his lap steel line on the song and changed everything.
“The EMT” is a story about a flight paramedic who has a crush on someone from his town that he’s never met. He’s been content to just live in that world until one evening fate intervenes and his crush ends up in a near-fatal car wreck. As he arrives on the scene he realizes who the victim is and instead of being distraught by his discovery of who she is, he’s delighted that he’s able to finally help her and be with her and hold her hand like he’s always dreamed of.
