Hemi Hemingway - The Lonely Hunter EP
Cat. no: LPPNKSLM092
Release Date: 18th June 2021
The Lonely Hunter EP is the debut EP from Hemi Hemingway - the project of London based New Zealander Shaun Blackwell as well as the latest single from Stockholm, Sweden indie label PNKSLM Recordings (Yung, ShitKid, Les Big Byrd etc).
After tip-toeing around the idea of a solo project like this one for a while, last year he finally set to recording a glittering ode to sixties pop, taking his cues from both classic and contemporary influences.
Embracing the timeless lovesickness of The Ronettes, The Shirelles and The Shangri-Las - subtly subverting it to focus on modern relationships, masculinity, and his own roots as a New Zealander - while contemporary acts like Sheer Mag, Angel Olsen, Aldous Harding and Shannon and the Clams provided inspiration as he penned his lyrics.
Tracks: Burnin’ Blue / It’s So Hard to Say Goodbye / The Lonely Hunter / Hemi’s Lament / Move Over Darling / My Lover, A Strange Her
