Hollowood from São Paulo in Brazil is the alt-indie quintet of Dan Carelli (Vocals / Guitar), Lucas Takejame (Vocals / Guitar), Renato Cruzatto (Bass / Vocals), Vitor Almeida Lopes (Keys / Synth) and Vitor Kajiro (Drums).
There is a natural uninhibited expressiveness that Hollowood deliver in their sounds. Music that is drawn from the heart and soul of the creators, is played with the carefree abandon that is only possible by a band who truly believe in what they are creating. So it is with some pleasure to introduce the quintet who through their own enthusiasm for their songs, is highly infectious.
That isn’t to say the material doesn’t have thoughtful composition, as it most certainly does, but rather than concentrate on the perfect pitch – Hollowood retain in playing – the enthusiastic nature that came about in the creative process and this makes the audience want to invest in them, for its very honesty.
A range of influences appear in the melting pot of sounds and Hollowood are able to express these thoughts in their out-put, which by the very nature of the composition process means continual change and evolution, including the very recent addition of synths to the line-up. A new LP is currently in the embryonic stage, which may see the light of day later this year.
