For the past few months, Slow Hollows has been a name I’d been hearing left and right. Ever since I had a chance to listen through their discography, it’s not hard to see why.
Hailing from the San Fernando Valley in Calif., Slow Hollows began in early 2013 as a brainchild of frontman Austin Feinstein; one that slowly turned into a two-piece band and grew to what it is today: a five-piece post punk band unlike any other. The band is comprised of vocalist/guitarist Austin Feinstein, guitarist Dylan Thinnes, drummer Jackson Katz, bassist Aaron Jassenoff, and keyboardist Reed Kanter — and they’re fresh out of high school.
What’s most impressive is the band’s nod to 90’s alt rock, one that comes with the perfect amount of nostalgia; the clean and dreamy guitar parts mixed with Feinstein’s grungy voice gives Slow Hollows a sound seemingly well beyond their years. But then again, age is just a number.
If you’ve got the time in your day, I highly recommend giving Slow Hollows a listen. They’re what I deem a perfect amalgamation of old-school meeting a young generation vying for their dreams and a place in the industry. Slow Hollows’ third full-length album “Romantic” is set release on November 4 via Danger Collective Records.
