hollow sunshine Held Above (LP, £17.95)label: Robotic Empire
VINYL COMES IN VARIOUS COLOURS RANDOMLY MIXED. Painting a hypnotic swirl of lush vocals over down-tuned riffs and steady rhythms, HOLLOW SUNSHINE's debut album brings together deep tuning with melodic undertones and a garage recording for a unique mix of warmly familiar elements. The balance of blown-out sludge, narcotic drone and pop sensibilities is an unlikely combination, yet the contrast between heaviness and catchiness, with mesmerizing vocals providing a calm and consistent drift throughout, sets the band well apart from contemporaries. 'Held Above' is Hollow Sunshine's first full-length and most realized vision after several EP releases. Vinyl edition (700 copies) plus quality download.
