Hemmingbirds, New EP “Half a Second”

The Hemmingbirds

The HemmingbirdsChicago’s own Hemmingbirds have just dropped their latest EP, Half a Second. The trio holds nothing back as they join with Mike Maimone on synth and organ. The EP includes four tracks. Four songs of loud up in your face drums, lush guitar, balanced by the stirring lyrics. This indie rock group started in 2010 with members Zach Benkowski, Timothy Cap, Yoo Soo Kim, formed from the songs written by Yoo Soo Kim. “This album isn’t necessarily a concept but more so a feeling.The thing that freaks us out about life is how ephemeral it is. Have you ever found yourself at a bar with a friend, talking about how awesome it was that time you went camping that one summer, or took that road trip last fall? But then you realize that it wasn’t last year but actually three or four years ago. That sensation truly irks us. Life is fast, man. It’s hard to pin down the sensation of time passing, but we wanted to make an attempt in music form. These four songs capture snippets of life in fast-motion, remembered in bits and pieces, spliced together in memory like four distinct reels of tape.”
