How did Hollow December come together in the first place?
Hollow December first formed when we all ended up in the same Year 11 music class and thought we’d have a go at writing our own songs rather than just playing Muse covers.
Tell us about your new EP, Ecotone. What is the story behind it? What inspired it?
Ecotone is what we like to think of as culmination of three years together as a band. The EP is kind of a collection of songs documenting the journey through happiness, doubt, validation, fear and acceptance.
How would you describe your sound and how did you come to it?
Our sound is probably best described as alt-rock, although we do incorporate elements of other styles in our music. There’s definitely lots of experimentation with different FX through which we aim to create density and a sense of atmosphere within our music.
You’ve got a show coming up for Arkadian’s EP launch. What can we expect from this?
This will actually be our first gig back after a short hiatus so we’re pretty much itching to get back to gigging! As far as what to expect, hopefully a very good show where we have a lot of fun and the audience has a lot of fun and the snare drum doesn’t get punctured.
Any other Hollow December news we should be keeping an eye out for?
We’ve got a few gigs coming up in the next few months that we’re pretty keen for and possibly some bigger ones happening at the end of the year that we’re very excited about. You can follow us on Facebook to keep up with all our gig dates.
Catch Hollow December at The Workers Club on Sunday July 28 from 8.30pm. Tickets are $10 on the door.
