Hemm‘s “Emerging With The Day” is out now on Spirit Level.
Hailing from Melbourne, Hemm, the duo comprising musical soulmates Juice Webster and Robert Downie, are the new signees of Spirit Level. If you remember well, it’s the collective who recently brought to your ears the bewitching ambient pop of Happy Axe. Hemm are going to release two EPs on this imprint – one is actually a re-release of their 2017’s project “Space Between Us”. The second collection is named “Emerging With The Day” and we’re happy to share with you its title track today.
Their evasive, atmospheric pop is loaded with caressing layers, synthetic arpeggio, unusual beats and cracking sounds. On the intimate single, which can sound a bit abstruse at first, the two artists are asking each other: “Will you remind me what it’s like to love?”. The only answer they provide is their mysterious music, both complex and beautiful. Interpret this as you want.
