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.
It’s always nice to get some follow-up on bands that I post about here on Indie Music Filter. Almost two years ago, I posted “The Woods” by Australian duo Hollow Coves, a track which a bunch of other blogs liked just as much as me, and it climbed to #1 on the Hype Machine.
Let’s see how this next track does, take a listen to “Coastline”.
Introspective and understated, ‘Coastline’ wells with the kind of optimism that can only be found through surrounding oneself in nature. Tapping into a universal yearning for escape to a simpler, more beautiful life, the song was penned after Hollow Coves discovered their shared love of travelling along Australia’s coasts. ‘Coastline’ sprung forth from a mutual nostalgia and thirst to find themselves zipping past crystal-blue seas and scorching white sands once more.
Hollow Coves‘ upcoming debut EP Wanderlust carries itself calmly and steadily, engulfing its listener like a gentle breeze that whispers softly the truths of the wayfaring nomad. Thematically, Hollow Coves see travel and the intrepid spirit as their muse for the entirety of their upcoming debut EP Wanderlust. With one in England and the other in Canada, the songs began to take shape. Ideas flew back and forth across the seas, their crude beginnings as “dodgy iPhone recordings played on hostel guitars” eventually maturing when Hollow Coves reunited in a little apartment in Toronto. The bare bones of Wanderlust were laid down at Montreal’s Indica Studios, then achieved a sort of full-circle closure, fleshing out in Hollow Coves’ home of Brisbane, Australia.
