Slow Hollows began as a solo-project for Austin W. Anderson (FKA Austin Feinstein). After finding some like-minded musicians to play with, the band’s lineup was solidified and they self-released several projects. Slow Hollows’ genre-bending sound is meant to keep the audience guessing, as Austin weaves in elements from a variety of influences into his songwriting. First described as Post-Punk, the band’s sound continues to evolve, incorporating indie pop, dance music, R&B sounds, horns and strings into their music in an attempt to avoid being categorized under one genre. Austin, has contributed to the music of artists like Tyler, the Creator, Frank Ocean and Brockhampton.
Recently, Slow Hollows shared the song and accompanying video. “Get Along,” produced by Bjorn Ytting (Lykke Li, Ariel Pink, Peter Bjorn and John, etc.), is a chronicle of redemption. Anderson’s vocals floating atop a shimmering beat as he hopes to reconcile with a loved one. The equally-magnetic, dual-screen visual reveals two sides of Anderson, with one half playing a colorful live performance of the song, while the other half gives a glimpse into his daily life.
“Get Along” is Slow Hollows’ first offering of new music this year, following 2018’s “Lessons for Later,” which arrived with a Kevin Abstract directed video, and “Selling Flowers.” The band has been steadily on the rise in the LA scene over the last few years, developing their own sound inspired by local punk venues like The Smell, where they booked shows for themeslves and recorded their 2015 debut Atelophobia in just two days. Their follow-up Romantic came the year after, and since then, the band wrapped up their 2018 North American fall tour with a sold-out show at The Troubadour, and earned a spot performing at Coachella in true DIY spirit with no proper team in place.
