‘The Hollow’ is from the band’s first release ‘TokoHorse’ b/w ‘The Hollow’, released via Static Caravan in October and serves as the first taster of three limited edition 7” releases. The beauty of the release is its presentation of the band’s diversity – dark and heavy slips seamlessly into ambient groove, providing a relaxing respite from the aforementioned sweats.
