The Hollows



The Hollows are a band from Dublin, Ireland. They are 2 guys and their songs are slow and low. It was on Fire When I Lay Down on It, is the title of their new record. The Music is so quiet and not-quite there that it's almost opaque, a combination of tenderly plucked guitars, organ, piano and drums, which blend perfectly alongside gentle electronica. All the while, the vocals are either crooned or whispered, creating a whole that's warmer than a lazy summer sunday, fuzzier than the effects of a bottle and a half of red wine and as welcome as a bucket of ice cold water on a sultry New York afternoon.

I try to download it but
the service has been "at
full capacity" the whole
day. Can you upload it
somewhere else? Maybe
Rapidshare? I know I am
asking a lot for a first
commenter but I am really
interested in this album.
