The stop-motion music video for their song "The Memory Tree"…is a genuine joy, with the song acting as a perfect as a swelling score.
lo importante es la belleza que destilan estas canciones, gracias a su exquisita silueta melódica y a un sonido rico y suntuoso
Lyrically, the album is a rabbit hole, the words begging to be repeatedly listened to in order to savour them while the band whips up some excellent moments.
Hallelujah the Hills are one of the great unsung bands of our time.
This rock thing ain’t so bad, especially if it’s done by one of the finest American rock bands. Such a great record.

One of rock and roll’s best kept secrets.
I’m You has generated a veritable buzz among both critics and longtime fans… an anthemic collection that is simultaneously outward-looking and introspective.
A deep and encompassing sound that pulls you in by the ears and spins you for a walk through bursts of thoughtful lyrics and enchanting harmonies, all built within the framework of firm rock beats
The new record is less than a month in the books and it's already one of my favorite records of 2019. I highly recommend it.
No solo es el mejor disco hasta la fecha de Hallelujah The Hills, además es uno de los mejores discos de rock americano de los últimos años
They've crafted an epic
The result is an album unlike anything Hallelujah the Hills has done.
It's somehow weirder but more accessible at the same time. You get the feeling that are just going to do whatever they want from here on out. If that's the case, count us in.
I was absolutely astonished. This is a beautiful, visceral document made at the intersection of folk and indie-rock. Some of the most refreshing songs I've heard all year.
I also happened upon stunning new record from Hallelujah Hills, a band I knew little about, but already feel a deep-rooted connection, as if I’ve been listening for years.
If you thought the best of the decade was over you might want to think twice. I'm You is a rich and stunning slice of Americana rock 'n' roll and relatable, earnest storytelling.
Might well be the best one as a whole...buy the whole gorgeous record.
In the right circumstance, could let the rest of the world know what those of us in the area already learned.
9/10. Ties up everything they've been working towards into one glorious hour-long burst.
Somehow every song on “I’m You” has an equal-but-totally-different energy. Ryan Walsh is one of the only rock musicians capable of writing songs about writing songs.
A lot of the reviews, press and interviews for the band center around me, but I wanted to write a little something about how incredible my bandmates are as collaborators and friends.
A lyrical masterpiece.
A conversation with Hallelujah the Hills at their cozy practice space.
The band's magnum opus.
A Ginsberg-esque telling of present day America backed by a band with a similar chaotic synchronicity as the band from Ziggy Stardust.
Ryan Walsh has always held an interest in history and folk music. Please enjoy this conversation with one of my favorite humans.
It’s everything we hoped for.
