About Hemlock Lane
Hemlock Lane's debut studio release, "The Last Night on Earth," is a postapocalyptic love letter penned by a group of five promising young musicians from Oregon's heartland. Inspired by bands from Young the Giant to the Beatles, Hemlock Lane writes driving pop songs in which bright synth tones balance fuzzed-out guitars, thoughtful songcraft provides substance to singalong melodies and the resilience of youth buoys the heft of impending adulthood. Similar in style to Northwest forbears Minus the Bear or Death Cab for Cutie, Hemlock Lane writes danceable pop songs for the thinking person. Recorded with Stephan Hawkes at Interlace Audio in Portland, OR, "The Last Night on Earth" is the culmination of three years' worth of tours up and down the Northwest Coast.
This is a record for anyone who's ever given up something good in hopes that something better is on its way. This is a record about the end of the beginning, and the beginning of the end. This is a record for listening to at a family reunion or driving home at 4 AM. This is a record for anyone who knows what it's like to start over. This record is for you.
