I would not consider it to be an exaggeration to deem Hemi Hemingway’s hauntingly melancholic album Strangers Again an aural renaissance.

His elegantly crafted songs seem to be sculpted from a similar chisel to Jeff Buckley; Hemingway’s soft vocals and weighty pleas too become a mournful musical opera. Tracks such as Green Envy invoke the saxophone which imbues the song with a certain gloomy beauty and dreaminess: “Is she just a friend or is her you’re dreaming of?” Alone In The Morning Alley is made richer by the quiet keys of the piano which steeps the track in soulful enchantment and renders the rest of the album a poetic labyrinth of wonder and musical intoxication.
