“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!

After releasing their debut EP last year, the NYC-based band is gearing up to put out their first full-length album, Ride On The Train. Full of gritty jams and soft, sweet ballads, Ride On The Train will be released March 5th via Alive Records.

Despite its title, album track “Down On Your Luck” sets a bright, hopeful tone with twangy guitars and a playful vocal melody. “Doghouse Blues” is a straight-up bluesy rock song with rollicking melodies and dirty guitar licks. “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. The album closes on a sweet note with “Nightfall,” fading out with smooth, crooning vocals drifting above light, dreamy instrumentation.

Having already performed alongside Deer Tick and Caveman, Hollis Brown will hit the road for a mini East-coast tour this month. Be sure to catch them live in your city, and stay tuned for more from Hollis Brown coming soon!

Video: Hollis Brown – “Ride On The Train”

NYC natives Hollis Brown make music that is lush, raw and full of heart. The band’s Nothing & The Famous No One EP will be released digitally on April 3rd.  For an early taste, the band has released a video for album track “Ride On The Train,” a triumphant song of new beginnings lead by warm, crackling guitar over booming piano.

Nothing & The Famous No One opens with the emotionally charged, bluesy love ballad, “Gypsy Black Cat.” The classic rock & roll track “Spoonful” features guest vocals by Deer Tick’s John McCauley. The band recorded Nothing & The Famous No One with producer Adam Landry (Deer Tick, Middle Brother) in Nashville during the summer of 2011. Taking great care to create a warm, vintage sound, the tracks were recorded live, straight to analog tape.
