The worst type of breakups is when you feel that there’s something missing in daily life, and you don’t know how to adapt. Yeah! This word ‘Adaptation’ is the real meaning of struggling and taking time to move on. And this is what Ollie Twohill is trying to tell us about in his latesting, Hollow. 

Musically, ‘Hollow’ is an upbeat powerful rock pop tune that you will easily love its vibes and energetic lines. I would say my favorite here is his singing style and the lovely guitar solo, however, I was wishing if it’s a bit longer really. When we get deeper into the song topic, you can feel it easily because we have been in such a situation before at least once in our lives. Hollow was inspired by a relationship breakup, where my partner at the time decided to abruptly end it. I was completely shocked and blindsided even though it was an amicable parting of ways.” Ollie clarified. No matter what this type of relationship was, still, the sudden breakup is an unbearable feeling for sure. Ollie is a one-band project, his siblings Blair (Drums) and Lawson (Bass) joined the recording of ‘Hollow.’ And I loved their input really as I can see here the powerful drumline and how the bass is keen to hold the core of the track to build a tight musical harmony. 

What was really interesting to me while listening to ‘Hollow,” that the musical style is like a great mix of several amazing bands together, when I checked his press info to know more about his influences, I found many names like John Mayer, Foo Fighters, Green Day, Blink 182, and Avril Lavigne among many others, actually, this creates a great diversity in his musical output.
