Slow Hollows/Ben Tan

LA-based band Slow Hollows shares a new single from their forthcoming new album. “Heart” is produced by Tyler, The Creator, a frequent collaborator of frontman Austin Anderson, and follows “Two Seasons” as the latest offering from the band’s third full-length Actors, due October 23 via self-run label Not Another Word with an exclusive license to AWAL. The new track finds the band combining with Tyler for a sprawling pop song that continues to surprise as it unfolds, with new instrumentation and flourishes of sound at every corner.

Actors finds Slow Hollows returning to what they know best: making music unconcerned by genre restraints, embracing the unknown and taking similar risks to the ones that got them here. The album is an expansive exploration of sound and genre, shunning the fears and insecurities often felt by creatives and resulting in an unbound and intricate body of work. Working alongside a cast of prolific collaborators including Tyler, The Creator, L.A. singer Ryan Beatty, Grizzly Bear’s Chris Taylor, Bjorn Yttling and Santigold engineer Will Van Boldrik, the band created a full-bodied auditory experience brimming with sonic detours that fuse together to form the album’s narrative. 

In addition to their headlining shows in LA and Brooklyn this Fall, Slow Hollows will be joining The Neighbourhood for several dates on their North American tour. The band will play 13 shows on this run, before concluding in St. Louis on November 15.

“Heathers”and “Jawbreaker” vibes ooze from The Naked and Famous new video

Published

on

The Naked and Famous are giving off a dark comedy vibe (think Heathers and Jawbreaker) in a major way with their new music video for their latest song “Bury Us”.


Alisa Xayalith accidentally murders her boyfriend, leading herself to enlist bandmate Thom Powers to help cover up the evidence. Additional chaos ensues all amidst bright colors, perfectly matching the shimmering synth sound of the track.

“Bury Us” is a track off of the duo’s forthcoming album ‘Recover’ which is a full-throttle dosage of the 2010s-era synth pop sound they helped define (remember “Young Blood”?!) mixed with a powerful sentiment of survival, and the very human process of self-preservation — of saving, choosing and celebrating oneself in a world constantly trying to put us down.

Haleek Maul by Ansuni Hall

 Brooklyn-born, Barbados-raised rapper Haleek Maul kicks off the new decade with a new single from his forthcoming debut album.

“GET2HIGH” is a sleek, moody banger produced by London’s Sega Bodega that doubles as a cautionary track, with Haleek opining, “whatever you do don’t get too high.” The new track is the fifth and final offering ahead of the release of his forthcoming debut Errol, due February 28th via Lex Records, following “Lucid” featuring Sean Leon, “Halo” featuring Mick Jenkins, “Abyss” featuring Ro Ransom, and “Ceiling Fan.” 

Speaking on the album, Haleek says: 
“Errol is my debut album, dedicated to my late grandfather. With this project I’m working through a lot of the things I’ve learned since I lost him, as well as speaking on the transformation I’m undergoing as an artist and person.

Haleek is also gearing up to celebrate the album’s release with a hometown show at Brooklyn’s Elsewhere Zone One on February 27th.
