Classically-edged alt-pop trio, The Hallows, are making their mark on the modern music scene with their debut album, 'Of Times and Tides', which addresses themes of relationships and how circumstances can change over time. With a style like no other, The Hallows fuse sounds from the likes of Muse, Portishead and even Kate Bush, creating a unique concoction which will please even the pickiest of listeners.
Having come from varying musical backgrounds, each member of The Hallows brings something special to the group. Sarah has performed as a backing vocalist/ multi-instrumentalist for Hafdís Huld, sharing stages with acts such as Paolo Nutini, Mika and Bloc Party. Also, Joe has supported cult band, Rock Bitch, as well as having played a number of television performances.
The group met at university and consequently, their friendship has has allowed them to become a tight knit unit, which is closely reflected in their playing style. They used to share a house together where third band member Dave subjected the group to strict drinking games and earned the title of 'band chef'.
As a band, The Hallows are involved with all aspects, not just the music. For example, they get stuck in coming up with the ideas for videos, artwork, set design and even their own blog. This hands-on ethos is exhibited in the video for 'Cardboard Love' which has a very interesting and intriguing concept.
'Of Times And Tides' was recorded at Riverside studios using a vintage Calrec desk that previously lived at the Royal Opera House. Subsequently, this gave the album its distinct tone, further proving that there's no band out there at the moment quite like The Hallows.
