It light up your day when you hear something so fresh and unique like this new song ‘Hollow’ from a genre-breaking brass-rock band Stacked Like Pancakes. The track is featured on their just-announced new album, titled Strange Creatures, a follow-up to 2015′ sophomore record, THIS IS US.
If Stacked Like Pancakes were just about brass-rock sound, they would have probably never appeared on the pages of AlteRock. But their creative frontman-songwriter Kellen McKay started the band, eager to experiment with genre boundaries. New song ‘Hollow’ is a perfect example of this crossover: while we can still hear Balkan trumpets, marching rhythm and Southern Slavic mood, it goes way farther than brass and folk tunes, touching on punk and alternative rock.
Give ‘Hollow’ a listen below (or two) and get inspired by its raw energy and upbeat sound atmosphere.
Baltimore-based group Stacked Like Pancakes became prominent after their 2011 debut album We’re Not Insane, which was followed by a fan-funded sophomore album THIS IS US in 2015.
