Hollow and Akimbo

Intricate electronic arrangements artfully blended with wiry guitars and dreamy vocals
If the oranges would never rot, and if the leaves would never fall. If everything stayed the same forever, I wouldn't care at all.
lyrics from Still Life

Jonathan Visger and Brian Konicek first met as teenagers, bonding over a shared fascination with strange sounds and old tape machines. They recorded in basements and bedrooms, attics and closets, amassing an ever-evolving archive of song fragments and noisy four track experiments.

Hollow & Akimbo is a continuation of that restless creative spirit. It is the culmination of years spent writing together. Each song is its own peculiar construction; a special blend of looped rhythms and intricate electronic arrangements, of Konicek’s wiry guitar textures, Mike Higgins' infectious drumming, and Visger’s dreamy, often melancholic, vocal melodies.

Hollow & Akimbo’s upcoming album was written, recorded, mixed, and mastered entirely by the band. Naturally. They have come a long way from those early days in the basement. Yet, at heart, Visger and Konicek are still the same incredibly curious kids -- creating music for the pure love of the process.
