Hembree "House On Fire (Thirty Tigers)"
Mixing some hip-hop production with ‘70s and ‘80s beat rock bands like Blondie and Talking Heads and modern danceable bands like St. Vincent and LCD Soundsystem, Hembree have landed on a sound all their own–though it did take me like 20 minutes to figure out who Issac Flynn’s vocal stylings remind me of. Spoiler alert: its Kenny Loggins. Not a striking resemblance or anything… just where my ear’s brain went for some reason. You can make your mind up for yourself by checking out the danceable and slightly sinister “Culture.”
