Hollow Hands is the musical project of Brighton based musician Max Kinghorn-Mills and has just released a new single. "Heaven Just Watched" is an interesting mix of 70's era Americana tinged folk rock and more modern forays into indie rock while being all psychedelic. It has all of that sunniness of the California 70's psychedelic folk scene and a little of the edge of 90's psychedelic indie rock. This is perfect if you adore the music of bands like The Byrds and The Brian Jonestown Massacre. It definitely has that weird vibe while still being just mainstream enough to kinda be pop-ish.
Max Kinghorn-Mills says of the new single:
"Chaos reigns & London is in flames, 1666. The lyrics for ‘Heaven Just Watched’ are based on a diary I kept when I moved into London to work on music. I was reading Peter Ackroyd’s definitive biography of the city & totally immersed in the mythology & hidden rituals which form the foundations of the city’s architecture. I imagined myself walking through those streets. Nothing has meaning, there are no gods, choose your own adventure."
