The Hollow Ends has released a new wintery uptempo indie-folk-ish Americana tune entitled ‘Annie Pardami’. It features 3-part harmonies, upright bass, acoustic guitar foot drums.
The Hollow Ends is a folk rock outfit based in St. Louis, MO and instigated by poli sci academic and songwriter Zachary Schwartz. Whether backed by a musical posse or belting solo from some lonesome stage, Schwartz’s socially-conscious message carries weight and carries far. Grim, intelligent, and sometimes satirical, the music of The Hollow Ends evokes the very essence of vaudeville: variety. It is an uneasy handshake between the fury of leather-clad and tatted west coast punk, think Bad Religion, and the quiet rage of post-60s protest singers Dylan and Cohen. Take the hooks of early 2000s folk rockers Mumford & Sons with the stomp folk fervor of Shakey Graves, and you’re near the mark. A cultivated look paired with Romani-inspired syncopated guitar completes the vaudeville aesthetic.
