How good is Hymn And Her? Here’s what BLURT had to
say
:

 

 

“It’s hard to imagine it’s much fun
writing pessimistic soft pop about being sort of miserable and maybe a little
angry. (Even after you add strings and horns and stuff.) And there’s no
guarantee that Earlimart’s Aaron Espinoza and Ariana Murray actually like it.
There is, however, no doubt that they’ve gotten incredibly good at it. The
result is a mini-masterclass in how to craft achingly gorgeous songs in a small
studio with an acoustic guitar. Full of subtle hooks and ear-catching
surprises, it’s perfect for filling up some silence. A refinement of last
year’s expansive Mentor Tormentor, H&H boasts tightness
in contrast, as one song laces itself into the next, until time has run out and
it’s hard to remember what you were feeling before it all got started. With
this, the duo’s first try in an attempt to release an LP every twelve months,
there’s finally reason to smile.”

 

 

 

As things worked out, the band had
been touring heavily in support of Mentor Tormentor and neither Espinoza
nor Murray wanted to lose that momentum., so they booked 4 weeks in the studio
and knocked out the new album in record time.

 

 

“We recorded the new album really
quickly….we didn’t wanna wait another 3 years to make another record. We just
wanna keep makin’ stuff,” quipped Espinoza, in a statement.
