Slow Hollows

Slow Hollows’ Austin Feinstein has spent the past decade following his arrow, doggedly reinventing and honing his music across a diverse collection of LPs. 2015’s Atelophobia and 2016’s Romantic both explored the fringes of indie rock, and put Feinstein on Frank Ocean’s radar, who tapped him to sing the chorus of Blonde’s “Self Control.” 2019’s Actors saw the Slow Hollows palette expanding further, incorporating elements of R&B and dance music, and production contributions from Tyler, the Creator (whose records Feinstein has appeared on since 2016). Despite the breakthrough moment, Feinstein and co decided the project had run its course, and announced that Slow Hollows was no more. Five years later, and it couldn’t be more fitting that the news of Slow Hollows return would come with his aptly titled fourth album, Bullhead. Out March 2024 via Danger Collective, the new LP showcases Feinstein occupying his most confident era yet, and his first using the Slow Hollows name as a solo moniker. 

“The last album felt like an effort to shed any identity Slow Hollows may have formed with our previous music,” explains Feinstein, “When it comes to Bullhead, making a sonic shift towards the sounds of early Slow Hollows records felt like something I needed to do for myself.” Across nine timeless and intentional songs Bullhead is a testament to Feinstein’s own stubborn perfectionism. “Making a cohesive album was the most important thing to me,” says Feinstein. “Having some time away from the band made me realize what Slow Hollows stood for. It's hard to realize what you're getting at when you're doing it. Making a sonic shift towards the sounds of early Slow Hollows records felt like something I needed to do for myself.”

Bullhead finds Feinstein at the height of his songwriting powers, stripping things back to an elemental place, only to build them back to smoldering heights. There are shades of Neil Young and Elliott Smith at the core of these songs but they’re all lushly rendered, unafraid to boast rich strings, moody synths, and bighearted guitar riffs.

“It’s taken years to resist the urge to push songs into what I want, as opposed to following the natural path forward,” he shares. “Refining and not forcing was something I leaned into on this record and why it was important to have collaborators, people that could take an objective look at what serves the song best and scrap everything else. I am confident and proud in my understanding of every moment on this album.”
