“Hemlocke Springs channels a kinda-weird energy all her own
on ‘Sever the Blight.’ …Springs’ hyper-specific lyricism…shines through,
making this track a great follow-up to her TikTok hit ‘Girlfriend.'”

-Rolling Stone


“a great deal of fun”
“(‘sever the blight’) is a thumping ‘80s pop song
written in the vein of a medieval fairytale.”



“Somewhere between pop, techno, and nostalgia,
‘sever the blight’ … packs so much into under three minutes.” 

Just over a year ago, hemlocke springs announced herself to the world via the release of her first single, ‘gimme all ur love‘, swiftly establishing her place as one of alt-pop’s most progressive and prodigious new talents.  The song garnered an impressive 30 million streams and immediate critical acclaim from around the world. Today she releases her debut EP, the highly anticipated going…going…GONE!, via AWAL, along with focus track ‘pos‘. Featuring 7 infectious songs, the EP showcases her knack for creating heartfelt indie-pop bangers. 

hemlocke springs shares, “The title going…going…GONE! refers to what is currently happening to the idea of where I thought would be. The path I thought I would be walking is going….going…gone. I am now at a point where I’ve realized I don’t really know anything: the past, the present, and particularly the future. going…going…GONE! serves as my commentary as I thought about those periods of time.”

In support of going…going…GONE!, hemlocke springs is embarking on a tour of North America, the UK and Europe, with dates kicking off this Sunday, September 30, in Washington, DC and concluding November 1 at the Pitchfork Music Festival in Berlin. Several dates, including her October 2 show in Brooklyn and her October 10 show in Los Angeles, are already sold out.

In February 2024, hemlocke springs will take the stage in Australia and New Zealand for the first time as part of Laneway Festival, with appearances in Brisbane, Sydney, Auckland, Adelaide, Melbourne and Perth.
