Download: Hollis Brown – “Nightfall”


“perfectly twangy, Instagram filter haze-y sound”NYLON

“Hollis Brown makes music that sounds just as alive today as it would’ve in 1966 and will 40 years from now.” SPIN

Hollis Brown will release their debut full-length album, Ride On The Train, March 5th via Alive Records. Having already shared an early taste with album track “Down On Your Luck,” Hollis Brown has now unleashed a second new track. Featuring crooning vocals and light, dreamy instrumentation, check out their newest single, “Nightfall.”

Full of gritty jams and soft, sweet ballads, Ride On The Train opens with the title track, a triumphant song of new beginnings lead by warm, crackling guitar. “Doghouse Blues” is a straight-up bluesy rock song with rollicking melodies and dirty guitar licks. Despite its title, album track “Down On Your Luck” sets a bright, hopeful tone with twangy guitars and a playful vocal melody, while “Walk On Water” kicks it up a notch with raw vocals and screeching guitar solos. Tracks like the melancholic “If It Ain’t Me” and the powerfully optimistic “Faith & Love” showcase the band’s vulnerable side.

Having already performed alongside acts like Deer Tick and Caveman, fans will have another chance to catch Hollis Brown live on their east coast tour, which kicks off today!
