“Australian band Hollow Everdaze has created a sound reminiscent of sixties music with its breadth of instruments and lyrical phrasing in “Still Ticking”. Directed by James Thomson, the video for the single has the hazy quality of a summer day and is the perfect setting for the song.”
Australian band Hollow Everdaze have shared their new video for “Still Ticking” via IMPOSE. You can also listen to the track here. The band explains that the song has “themes of brutal honesty, romance and patience.” It’s off their upcoming debut album ‘Cartoons’, out early next year.
Drenched in reverbed lushness, Hollow Everdaze have been reimagining psychedelic pop since they began in 2007 by lead vocalist, Dan Baulch and bassist, Jackson Kay in their small town hometown of Bacchus Marsh in Western Victoria.
Having spent the last year working on the release of their debut full-length album, recorded by rising Melbourne producer, John Lee (known for his work with Beaches, Lost Animal, The Ocean Party), mastered by David Walker (NUN, Beaches, GOAT, Jen Cloher) at Stepford Audio, and with video and art collaborations from James Thomson, Niv Bavarsky and Micheal Olivo, the band are set to unveil their newest work to the world.
Debut single and title-track, “Still Ticking” is soaked in woozy twang and Myles Anderson’s signature swooning violin. It perfectly captures the Australian indie rock ensemble’s delicate melodic layering, while it reintroduces frontman Daniel Baulch’s raspy romanticism and Sixties-style craftsmanship.
Hollow Everdaze capture the urgency of a band who –after settling into their current five-piece line-up – have traced their own weird, divergent path through the haunted backwoods of song-writing. It shows through in their stunning debut EP, released in 2013 which received rave reviews from Australia’s most highly respected journalists and earned them support spots for international artists including The War On Drugs (US), Unknown Mortal Orchestra (NZ) and Wavves (US), plus saw them join American Football (US) on their East Coast tour of Australia in 2015.LINKS Facebook | Soundcloud
