HOLLOW SUNSHINE album out today, video premiere on Noisey/Vice, iTunes coverage and mo’

We are thrilled to announce that the debut album by HOLLOW SUNSHINE is out today! Available on vinyl through the Robotic Empire – Online Store and digitally through iTunes or Bandcamp, Held Above contains 9 tracks of blissed out doom/pop/garage glory.

Also premiering today is the band’s first official music video, for the album track “Here For Now”. This just dropped via Noisey / Vice, who called it “handheld and woozily out of focus – like the world is whizzing by when you’re just the right side of tipsy… It’s pure 90s and it makes us wanna dig out that dusty Big Muff and turn everything up loud.” Believe dat!

On the digital download tip, iTunes was kind enough to feature the album cover on their Main storefront page, Music landing page, and Alternative genre page. Too cool! Here’s a little screengrab of HOLLOW SUNSHINE chillin below their girl Lady Gaga:

Hollow Sunshine debut album to be released by Robotic Empire

Hollow Sunshine Promo PhotoRobotic Empire is proud to present Hollow Sunshine‘s debut LP, titled Held Above, set for a November 12th release date worldwide.

Hollow Sunshine is a California-based duo consisting of Reuben Sawyer (instrumentation) and Morgan Enos (vocals). Blending massive downtuned riffs with a pop aesthetic, Held Above yields a familiar yet all together unique listening experience

The contrast between heaviness and catchiness (with melodic vocals providing a calm, consistent drift throughout) makes Hollow Sunshine stand out starkly from contemporaries. Blurring the line between pummelling doom and soaring pop, Held Above expands upon ideas forged on initial EPs released by Vendetta and Bridgetown Records, but with new found clarity to composition and production.

A visual artist by trade, Sawyer is also known for his intricate artwork through Rainbath Visual, utilized by a variety of bands such as Chelsea Wolfe, Deafheaven, Inter Arma, Thou and Wolves in the Throne Room. His minimalist imagery for Held Above juxtaposes the rich sonic textures found within the 9-track album.

Held Above is Hollow Sunshine‘s strongest work to date, and will be available on vinyl and digitally via Robotic Empire on November 12th. Audio, video and further details will become available shortly, and for now a teaser trailer can be viewed here:
