The Story of Hollow Down
And we have lingered in the chambers of the sea.
With sea girls wreathed in red and brown
Til human voices wake us
And we drown
-The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock
Hollow Down formed in 2013 out of various players from the Humboldt County, CA music scene to explore a different, darker version of folk, fuzz, rhythm, and good ol greasy punk rock. After releasing their first album on their own Had Matter Records in 2014 and touring New Orleans to Northern California in 2015, the band was largely on hiatus until fall 2017 when bass player Perry toured the Pacific Northwest playing solo versions of the Hollow Down catalogue with Trash Slam Poet Wil Gibson. Now fully reformed with old and new members, the sound is evolving into a juggernaut of haunting rhythms, gritty soulful vocals and some dynamic musical surprises. Stay tuned, quite a few things are brewing as the beast awakens from its slumber...
