Music Video Premiere: The Hollows – “August”
July 18th, 2012
Ramshackle Appalachia meets the big bad city in the sound NYC outfit The Hollows churn out. It’s freewheelin’ fare, getting down to the most skeletal roots of folk music, while still maintaining joyous, sing-along worthy acoustic creations that are right in line with what similar artists like Trampled By Turtles and The Punch Brothers are spittin’ out these days. On the heels of their debut LP, Belong To The Land, the band recently released a self-titled EP. “August”, taken from that short collection, is a zap of energy, and brings with it a video that takes the band’s skeletal sonic qualities to a literal, visual level. Here, in a video we’re premiering, a band of boney brethren stalk the rather dapper looking band, and a confused bystander sucked into the whole situation like a bad dream. Have a look and be sure to pick up the band’s new EP.
