"Contemporary Music's Roots Rock Solution" - WCBS FM
The Hollows' new album Between the Water and the Wonder Wheel was produced by John Siket (Phish, Sonic Youth, Dave Matthews Band) and has received airplay on over 100 radio stations across the country. The music video for the album’s first single, “Mountains to the Sea,” was featured on Billboard, and the record has garnered additional attention from Daytrotter, Paste Magazine, and more. Previous discography includes their debut album Belong to the Land (2011), a self-titled EP (2012), and a live album, Neverending Show (2013). The music has received numerous accolades and appeared in three feature films. The band has become known for their rip-roaring live shows, and has toured nationally in 27 states.
The sound of The Hollows is uniquely New York: a contradictory, harmonic melting pot that takes all its roots, twists them around, and produces something else; something new. With no frontman (or six frontmen), the result is a veritable junkyard of instruments and musical personalities, a carnival on wheels, a one-man band in six bodies that owns the stage with all the mobile, rhythmic ease of a seasoned railroad gang.
