The band conveys psychedelic impressions of metropolis through a viscerally human perspective. Placed in context to the band's music, the name Hollow Engine effects images of urban struggle, both personal and societal.
All three members have been inspired by 60s and 70s rock, decades of jazz, and past musical scenes from around the world, notably the Brazilian Clube da Esquina movement. These influences are blurred and transformed into a unique aesthetic by the obsession to create something totally new.
It's taken the group 5 years to produce their first EP as they've morphed across a spectrum of sounds including country, rock, bossa nova and jazz, to finally arrive at a sound they felt was unique enough to share. The creative process they've arrived at is to be their own nemesis, wriggling under self-inflicted pressures to write and re-write, record and re-record, until the impossible outcome of perfection is achieved. Hollow Engine is the sound of continuous implosion.
