L.A. indie act shares enthralling new single & video
Slow Hollows is an indie rock band that has steadily risen through the Los Angeles music scene over the last couple of years. Fronted by multi-talented musician Austin Anderson, the group has released three excellent albums to date: 2014’s I’m Just As Bad As You Are, 2015’s Atelophobia and 2016’s Romantic. Since then, Anderson has cut his teeth on other projects such as Tyler, The Creator’s Flower Boy and Frank Ocean’s Blonde and Endless, in addition to working on new Slow Hollows material. Today, the band has released a brand new folk-tinged ballad called “Come Back In” along with its visually stunning L.A.-set music video.
Here, Anderson’s smoldering vocals float over airy keyboards and searing guitar strings. Slow Hollows continue their knack for blending several different sonic influences on this track. The first half channels indie-folk stylings before snowballing and coalescing into a haunting, soaring indie-pop gem. The track also shines with poignant moods and intimate R&B influences, and the shimmering final crescendo features an ethereal guitar chord that brings it home in cathartic fashion. The song’s video, meanwhile, is just as enthralling. Directed with deft visual aplomb by American Millennial, the clip follows a young woman wandering around various Los Angeles locales. Furthermore, the cinematography – shot in lush 16mm by Jacob “Kuba” Bojsza – is absolutely incredible.
“We filmed it in the San Fernando Valley on the hottest day of summer in 2018,” Anderson said. “Throughout the video, she makes her way through different corners of the greater Los Angeles area, concluding the day with a beautiful dance sequence in the hills of Malibu.” Overall, it’s a captivating video that expertly conveys the song’s earnest spirit.
