released May 7, 2021

Lost Map are excited to partner with Emma Kupa – of Standard Fare, Mammoth Penguins and The Hayman Kupa Band fame – on the release of a brand-new standalone single. A gentle reminder to celebrate the good things in life, whether on your big day or any other day, the joyous ‘Happy Birthday’ is available during the month of May as part of Lost Map’s PostMap Club subscription service, as well as via digital platforms from May 6. The PostMap Club release takes the form of an actual birthday card, posted to you whether it’s your birthday or not.

“Happy Birthday is pretty self-explanatory,” says Emma. “I wanted to write a song to wish a happy birthday to loved ones, but also when it’s my birthday I reflect on life so far etc, and I always tend to see what I haven’t achieved or what I regret. So, it is also a message to myself to focus more on the positives and also just be grateful to be alive and for what I do have.”

A songwriter of insightful warmth with a sharp eye for lyrical detail and a powerful, idiosyncratic voice, Emma Kupa initially made her name with cult indie-pop band Standard Fare, who called it a day at the peak of their success in 2013. She currently fronts the bands Mammoth Penguins and The Hayman Kupa Band (alongside Darren Hayman). As a solo artist, Emma released her debut album It Will Come Easier in September 2020, via Fika Recordings. With her various musical projects, Emma has played at several different Lost Map events over the years – including the Howlin’ Fling festival on the isle of Eigg and Kid Canaveral’s Christmas Baubles in Edinburgh – becoming a firm favourite and friend of the label in the process.
