Hemi Moore demonstrates why he is such an exciting talent and definitely ‘one to watch’ with the beautifully poignant ‘Faith’, released on 20 November.
Born and raised in Zimbabwe until the age of 12 when his family relocated to Southend-on-Sea, Hemi Moore’s music is both deeply honest and thoughtful as he analyses the world around him. With the fragile yet soulful ‘Faith’, Hemi Moore discusses the often unrealistic and unhealthy relationship expectations fostered on social media.
‘Faith’ is Hemi Moore’s most ambitious work yet, combining timeless songwriting with innovative production that seamlessly incorporates classical guitar flourishes with psychedelic synth textures. The thought-provoking lyrics, “Maybe it’s not broken / Just a little out of focus / We don’t need to go there”, show how tired Hemi Moore is of people comparing themselves to others on social media and trying to distinguish the truth from polished lies through screens.
On writing ‘Faith’, Hemi Moore said: “I needed to fall in love with writing again, connecting and speaking to a lot of old friends and family helped with that during lockdown. I’m now trying to teach myself to be more appreciative of the small things and not to compare myself to others.”
