A dynamic indie folk group brimming with the band’s passion for travel and observing different shades of the world, Hollow Coves is the project of Ryan Henderson and Matt Carins. After meeting in 2013 through mutual friends and a shared love of acoustic music, the boys began writing together with no real expectations for where it might lead. And now, three years later, Ryan and Matt’s memories from their travels across all corners of the globe have led to a range of new music influenced by their journeys.
Quoting influences such as Angus & Julia Stone, Ben Howard, & The Paper Kites, the boys are setting out to deliver their own brand of indie folk. Blending an earthy folk sound, acoustic melodies & vocal harmonies; Matt and Ryan take turns delivering lyrics of reflection, frequently harmonizing as their voices blend together and complement each other.
Hollow Coves released the debut EP “Wanderlust” last year on Nettwerk Records, which featured the standout and hugely popular track “The Woods.” The single reached #1 on both Hype Machine and THR’s “Top TV Songs” chart, and has since seen millions of plays across the globe.
Hollow Coves have just released ‘Ran Away. Produced by Chris Bond (Ben Howard, Justin Nozuka, Xavier Rudd), “Ran Away” is a perfect reflection on how change over time can make people unrecognizable to themselves and to others - it sees the duo expanding on their sound, yet still retaining the pitch perfect harmonies and soothing melodies that they are known for, to create a beautifully cinematic track filled with sentiment.
