“rain that patters on the flophouse shingles / bodies lyin where it dont hurt / cause up is heaven and down is dirt”
Hollow Down is a genre-fluid enigma. They've been described "as if Tom Waits took acid and tried to play bluegrass with a punk rock band”; throw in some Spaghetti Western flavor and a lot of heavy rhythm, and you’re getting close. The band formed in 2013 in Arcata, CA to explore a different take on blues, folk and good ol’ greasy garage rock, and have evolved into a juggernaut of haunting rhythms, darkly relatable lyrics and musical twists. Nationally recognized poet Wil Gibson joins for frequent collaborations, giving this rock band another level of emotional intensity and honesty while remaining extremely fun and danceable.
