Brooklyn folk rock revivalists The Hollows are a freewheeling collective of multi-instrumentalists. 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.
The Hollows operate with an egalitarian ethos – there is no frontman amongst the group’s six members. Each of them rotate on instruments, lead vocals, songwriting and arranging duties, which gives their songs a feel that is eclectic but consistent. It’s clear that the members all have their own ideas, but also understand the group’s common goal.
