Hollows


Artist: Hollows
Track: You’re Fine
Release Date: 23/07/2021

Hollows are a 4-piece Alternative/Indie band based in Manchester. Singer and guitarist Sean Davies formed the band in early 2017 with the release of their debut single and E.P following shortly after. 

Atone – “I love the dramatic drums and guitar looping to create a rushing effect merging into the singer’s voice. Loved the production of high/low energy which brought the song longevity. I confess I listened to the whole of it totally enraptured 5/5” – Steve Willcox, Little Indie Blogs

With some original members moving on to other projects, Hollows were joined by drummer Dan Dyson, bassist Jack Barnes and finally lead guitarist Liam Lewis as of 2021. The Cure, Joy Division, Kings Of Leon, The Killers, Radiohead, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Fleetwood Mac are only a handful of the band’s influences despite live reviews delivering comparisons to Placebo and Smashing Pumpkins.

“Apologise “ is a very interesting song. It sounds like a track from The Charlatans’ “You Cross My Path” 2008 album with Brian Molko on the vocals. It starts slow and heavy, but quickly turns into a softer, semi acoustic, spacious Feeder-like chant. If any other band tried to pull off that stunt, they would have surely failed. But Hollows do it naturally, without any effort or a single false tone 9/10” – Rita Dabrowicz, Indie Midlands.

During a challenging 18 months for everyone, Hollows have made the most of their time by writing and recording new material to be released this year. The band’s discography is available to stream on most streaming platforms and also available to buy via their bandcamp store.

Hollows released their first single of 2021 in May. “Advice” has since become the band’s most streamed track to date. 

“RGM will happily give you some advice… listen to this track and it’ll be the best thing you do all day, seriously.” – Chloe Mogg, RGM 

ABOUT THE SONG

It’s about wanting that little bit more than you have out of life but also understanding that what you have is okay and you’re not doing all that badly. Being proud of your accomplishments however big or small.
