Their rootsy sound is a melange of mandolins, banjos, guitars, accordions, horns, harmonicas, and just about anything else the guys can get their hands on. “Carried Away” is a sweeping, anthemic track off of their upcoming EP that shows The Hollows at their best.

Clarence Bucaro, “Two Men Down”

Clarence Bucaro, “Two Men Down”

With his literate lyrics, richly toned voice, and rustic aesthetic, Clarence Bucaro has developed a singular sound that is distinctly American. On his fifth album, Walls of the World, he explores the concepts of political and personal division, and how they affect both our personal lives and the larger narrative of world events.

Sorry, there was an error fetching the song!

Bucaro was first inspired to write about this topic during a trip to Jerusalem and experienced the contrast between the old world majesty of Jerusalem and the squalor of the refugee camps in Ramallah and the West Bank. The imposing presence of the wall that separated the two sides was impossible to escape and served as a physical manifestation of the larger divisions between the two cultures.

Clarence explains. “These songs were written after having my son and my perspective changed as I saw how having a child fits into a conflicted and divided world. So the two perspectives of the album became a marriage of observing the outside world with how it ties in to my personal own world.”

“Two Men Down” is an elegant folk song written as a tribute to two conflict photojournalists – Chris Hondros and Tim Hetherington – who were killed in Libya while covering the rebel uprising against Muammar Gaddafi.

If you enjoyed “Two Men Down,” check out his video for “Child of War” – another track off of Walls of the World.
