Hollow Sunshine – “Careful Travel” (Stereogum Premiere)

Hollow Sunshine’s music occupies some liminal space in between shoegaze and sludgy metal, imbued with all the melodic sensibilities of the former while embracing the slow build-up and attention to detail of the latter. “Careful Travel” — the second single from their upcoming sophomore LP Bring Gold — is on the softer side of the equation, a pillowing curtain of heavy guitar punctuated by Morgan Enos’ gently disarming vocals. It hangs with a heavy shoulder of burden, a feeling of uneasy detachment. “Take my side,” the lyrics wearily plead, but the song cuts out before we can get an answer. Listen below.
