Emét (Emmét McGonagle) is an Irish indie-folk musician based in Calgary AB, with influences ranging from Hozier and Orville Peck to Phoebe Bridgers. Following the release of their critically-acclaimed EP Cheers & All the Best earlier in March, the Derry native’s latest country-inspired single Hate To See It was released on 26 November 2021 and details the daily routine of a keyboard warrior with no friends, no prospects and a questionable grasp on modern politics. It comes as the first track from Emét’s upcoming debut album, Carlin’s Farm, coming 8 April 2022.
