Slow Hollows is a four-piece indie-rock band from the San Fernando valley. It consists of Austin Feinstein, Jackson Katz, Aaron Jassenoff and Daniel Fox. The band was started in January 2013 by Feinstein. Slow Hollows most recent project 'Romantic' was released November 4th 2016 on Danger Collective Records. Feinstein has collaborated with Tyler the Creator on both 'Flower Boy' and 'Cherry Bomb' as well as Frank Ocean on 'Blonde'.
Rarely should a painfully, wincingly honest song about a relationship gone off the rails be the kind of ditty you whistle to the blooms, but such is the gift of Sunbathe's Maggie May Morris. "You think that you know where I'm at," she sings on With A Little Help, from her band's self-title debut, "when I'm hiding out smoking drugs and getting fat." It takes a special talent to combine such vulnerability and strength and fit it between the verse-chorus-verse of a great pop song, and that's exactly where Morris shines. Otherwise forlorn tales of heartbreak, confusion, and familial dysfunction are lacquered with thick dollops of hummable pop-rock--a bit like taking downers on the Santa Monica Pier at the feet of a beautiful purple-orange sunset. Live, Morris' pop sheen gets a ragged makeover. Backed by Typhoon's Pieter Hilton (drums) and Shannon Steele (bass), her lilting voice becomes a growl. The guitar solos get a little looser. A little more ferocious. And Portland's best new pop band becomes a warhorse of rock 'n' roll economy.
