At The Hollow is a trio raised on a plethora of influences ranging from metal to classical music and grunge to contemporary electronica. The band consists of a guitar-playing vocalist, percussionist wielding exotic instruments like timpani and glockenspiel and a contrabass player armed with a bow. Following the vision and wistful, pensive sound of singer/guitar player Kalle Koo, At The Hollow forms a sound completely their own and are a mesmerizing listen.
Candid and touching, “What I Hold Most Dear” is unlike anything you’ve ever heard before. Unique yet met with critical appraisal across the board from rock publications to metal zines, “What I Hold Most Dear” is, according to critics a…
“One of a kind –deserves much commendation."
“Pretty charming listen.”
“Fragile, melodic, somber piece of work.”
“An Indie/rock band with a personal style.”
A prime example of their uncanny knack for rending heartstrings and stopping the audience on its tracks, the “Numbed” video manages to haunt you and move you to the edge of tears at the same time.
After such a remarkable debut album and critical triumphs already under their belts, things certainly are looking up for At The Hollow, who will be playing in support of the masters of emotional music, Anathema, and progressive metal giants Dream Theater in Helsinki’s Ice Hall on August 2nd.
Their career rapidly gaining momentum, At The Hollow transcends mere rock. They are bridging the gap between artful, emotive music and audiences open-minded enough to pay attention.
