“…10 tracks of awesome!” – NYLON Guys
“ …a buoyant and impeccably layered sound full of vibrant little melodies, chirpy electronics and choppy beats” – WNYC
“Newcomers Hollow & Akimbo have been treated to a typically synth-soaked remix of their “Singularity” single by Ghostly affiliate Com Truise.” – XLR8R
Hollow & Akimbo construct a peculiar- yet enthralling- brand of cerebral electronic pop. Today, the trio releases their self-titled debut LP via Quite Scientific Records and share album track “The One Who Has to Carry You Home” as a free download!
Having previously unveiled LP cut “Singularity,” which features deliciously fuzzy guitars & earnest, yearning vocals, “The One Who Has to Carry You Home” further showcases the trio’s skill at creating pop songs with a unique electronic-meets-rock edge.
Written, recorded, mixed and mastered entirely by the band, Hollow & Akimbo features gritty textures layered over intricate arrangements. Combined with a special blend of looped rhythms, the group- Jon Visger, Brian Konicek & Mike Higgins- have created a collection that is difficult to categorize.
Recording together at home in basements, bedrooms, attics, and closets, Hollow & Akimbo have amassed an ever-evolving archive of musical snippets, song fragments and a fair share of noisy four track experiments.
