Introducing…The Holloways

September 23, 2007


An indie rock band from the UK: they sound a lot like you might expect. But unlike their common company such as The View or The Futureheads, The Holloways have a little bit of a unique spin on their tunes. Their first single, Generator, has a touch of a beachy, tropical feel if I can stretch so far as to say that. The rapid pace of Alfie Jackson’s vocals carries you to this warm sunny day I speak of.

Their catchiest song, however, is “Dancefloor.” With their incredibly unoriginal lyrics about needing your friends to get your back after being embarrased trying to pick up a girl (kinda like a “Backfire at the Disco” and “All My Friends” combo), they still manage to create one the most fun and carefree songs I’ve heard in a while.

Sharing a label with The Polyphonic Spree and, uh, Lil Jon, their album came out stateside in October of last year, but have yet to create a buzz on this side of the Atlantic.
