Crafted from analog guitars, drums, and field recordings, distorted synths give way to an angular beat as hypnotic vocals enchant and engage. The track blurs the lines between electronic immersion and alternative orchestration. “Hollow” is the first single off of Dance Loud‘s forth coming 2020 DIY independent debut album, The Moment, set for release on June 5th. A reflection of the struggles of the world and the emotions within it, The Moment is meant to be listened to as a whole in an endless loop and can be described as “emotional dance music,” offering sounds you can dance and cry to.
“We truly feel art is a reflection of reality and ‘Hollow’ is just that. After going through a life-changing experience and nearly dying by being rear-ended by a semi-truck on a highway and ripping apart our hand-built tour bus, the month in the hospital gave us a lot of time to think about all the shitty things and shitty people we have dealt with. We started to truly understand intention, justification, and perception. The song is exactly about that,” shares Dance Loud. “We justify every action we make and see through others’ eyes can be seen as bad or good. In the end, there is no bad and good, there just is. This song is one of our favorites sonically and feel it foreshadows the deep and dark underlying tone of The Moment as a whole. Once our souls synced up with this project, years of bottled feelings came pouring out.”
