There will always be those acts that, for one reason or another, fail to click; there will always be others, meanwhile, when all it takes is that one particular track for a newfound, firmly rooted infatuation to fall into place. Slow Hollows’ Two Seasons is one such song: expertly performed and exemplarily produced, it contains an incredible beauty, as lachrymose keys, cinematic strings and lustrous slide guitar rally around a softly thudding pulse with a resting heart rate of 90 bpm. “Do you love me, or do you love the feeling?” Austin Anderson unhurriedly reiterates, audibly resigned to the inevitable but resolute all the same, as he gently tugs at your figurative strings with the dexterity of a master puppeteer. Slow, yet sure to win over anybody with anything beating away within their thorax.
Two Seasons is lifted from Slow Hollows’ forthcoming Actors full-length, which is available from October 23rd via Not Another Word.
