Half Speed – “Did I Imagine Everything?”


“Did I Imagine Everything?” is a hypnotic pop gem from Half Speed, the project of Australian musician Ben Corbett. Hazy guitars and a pulsing bass line accompany gentle vocals, singing aptly of daydreams and lazy memories. “If nothing is real then I’ve lost my mind,” Corbett sings into the enchanting chorus, asking “did I imagine everything?” amidst trickling guitars and serene synth touches. The track touts a strong melodic pull and dreamily consuming production throughout.

Corbett explains more: “‘Did I Imagine Everything’ is about thinking that you’re in a relationship with someone and it’s all going well but fact it’s all over and you didn’t even realise. Now it all feels like a dream.”

“Did I Imagine Everything?” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of August 2021’ Spotify playlist.

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Emerging Indie Pop.
