Australian indie folk duo Hollow Coves have joined Nettwerk’s label roster, and today share an official video their debut track, “The Woods”. The band released their debut EP, Wanderlust, in February, and is currently working on their debut full length.
Of the video, the band says, “‘The Woods’ tells a story of escapism. We can get so caught up with distractions in our lives that we often forget to take time to enjoy the important things. Our friend Jordy Merry came up with the concept for the video, and when we heard his vision for it we were super excited to see it take form. The video follows six different characters, all uniquely different with their own lifestyles and individual characteristics. It was filmed in various locations around the Sunshine Coast in Australia, following the characters as they come together and find their sense of belonging.”
A dynamic indie folk group brimming with the band’s passion for travel and observing different shades of the world, Hollow Coves is the project of Ryan Henderson and Matt Carins. After meeting in 2013 through mutual friends and a shared love of acoustic music, the boys began writing together with no real expectations for where it might lead. And now, three years later, Ryan and Matt’s memories from their travels across all corners of the globe have lead to a range of new music influenced by their journeys. Blending an earthy folk sound, acoustic melodies & vocal harmonies; Matt and Ryan take turns delivering lyrics of reflection, frequently harmonizing as their voices blend together and complement each other.
