AUDIO: First Listen - Hollow & Akimbo's 'Solar Plexus'
Hollow & Akimbo construct a peculiar brand of cerebral electronic pop. With gritty textures layered over intricate arrangements, combined with a special blend of looped rhythms, the duo - Jon Visger & Brian Konicek - have created a collection that is difficult to categorize. Hollow & Akimbo's debut EP, Pseudoscience, will be released October 1 on Quite Scientific Records.
Recording together at home in basements, bedrooms, attics, and closets, Hollow & Akimbo have amassed an ever-evolving archive of musical snippets, song fragments and a fair share of noisy four track experiments. EP opener "Fever Dreams" is a cinematic cut of moody guitars and punchy drums, churning with an aggressive hip hop swing.

Written, recorded, mixed and mastered entirely by the band, Pseudoscience is a shining example of Hollow & Akimbo's ability to create distinct, intellectual pop. The 4-track EP seamlessly melds soaring emotive vocals over irresistible beats and wiry guitars, all peppered with surprising electronic flourishes.
