Desperate Journalist – “Hollow”

I was a big fan of London post-punk band Desperate Journalist’s 2014 single “Control,” which I described at the time as “powerful guitar pop that hits like the Smiths amped up to Savages’ intensity level.” They’re back this month with a new single called “Hollow.” It’s a little more understated but just as intense — rhythmically charged, bursting with melody, and ready for your enjoyment below.

“Hollow” is out physically 11/18 on Fierce Panda and is available digitally on iTunes now. Desperate Journalist will play Kamio in London’s Shoreditch neighborhood on 11/12.
