Hollow Coves - Ran Away

This review was originally published in April of 2018.

This might be an outtake from Tom Petty's Wildflowers, with the confident simplicity and the smattering of small observations that create a pointillist cohesion. The twangy-clean country guitar with a bit of amp crunch adds the counterpoint, and everything creeps into view from miles away and speeds by as if from the window of a train.

Acoustic guitar, piano, some bass drum, a strictly rationed underpinning of reverb and good instinct, apparently that's all it takes. And the voices, everywhere, but it's just a melody; this song is a gang of ghosts, kicking up air in unison. It's breathtaking.

Hollow Coves is a Folk band from Australia.
