Debut Album, Pretend To Care, Out Now On 6131 Records
Portland, Oregon’s HEMINGWAY are taking their heartfelt blend of alternative / emo on the road later this month, with a run of West Coast tour dates. The band recently released their debut full length, Pretend To Care, on 6131 Records.
Equal parts modern emo and vintage alternative, HEMINGWAY‘s full length debut offers the perfect blend of hooks and melancholy, just in time for the colder months. Pretend To Care‘s spot-on recording by Jack Shirley (Joyce Manor, Tony Molina, Deafheaven) is warm but raw, complimenting the heartfelt music and lyrics. The band’s sound resides somewhere between melodic and morose, with a healthy dose of wit to pull it all together. Pretend To Care‘s many infectious refrains are more than enough to grab the listener and the depth of songwriting will keep them coming back for more.
With so many entries in the crowded and vague genre of emo, HEMINGWAY stand out with tastefully incorporated ’90s influences, unabashed love of poppy songcraft, and quirky personality.
