THE HAPPY HOLLOWS NEW DEBUT ALBUM




With a loyal Los Angeles fan-base, The Happy Hollows looks to breakout in 2010. Self-releasing their album "Spells" late last year, Autumn Tone Records picked it up and just released it last week on their label guaranteeing a wider audience beyond the Los Angeles borders. If you haven't had the pleasure of hearing them, you probably have already but just didn't know it. The band and their song, "High Wire" were recently featured in a national commercial for latest Samsung commercial. They're also slated to perform at this year's SXSW music & film festival in Austin, Texas in March. And to top it off, The Huffington Post just profiled them in their "Best Bands in the US" feature. Read the whole article right HERE or click the photo below. And be sure to catch them when they perform March 12 at The Troubadour.



The Huff Post's Jonathan Kim also posted some Youtube vids of the interview with front- woman Sara Negahdari. Check out all of them HERE. Below is a short clip of Sarah talking about the L.A. music scene. And check out our past write-ups of The Happy Hollows HERE!



Reviews:

“When you see the Happy Hollows, there will be no doubt that you're witnessing something special.”
-- Huffington Post

"A pugilistic mix of stinging guitars, turbulent rhythms, and shouted vocals that alternates between childlike experimentation and ferocious firestorm. Spells is twisty and frantic, yet perpetually melodic.”
-- Los Angeles Times

“Flecks of heavy stoner fuzz and wafts of breezy modern rock blow in and out of Spells, but at its core, it's a ripper. Most of the credit goes to Sarah Negahdari; she's a powerful but economical guitarist, jutting in and out of the tracks like a jagged saw.”
-- Pitchfork

“A killer hybrid of Kim Deal, PJ Harvey and Emily Haines. Negahdari has the guitar chops, explosive energy and winning sense of humor that should make The Happy Hollows one of the more interesting bands of our new millennium’s next decade.”
-- Wired Magazine

“The Happy Hollows have a lot of weapons in their arsenal but chief among them is Sarah Negahdari and her Polly Harvey meets Kim Deal croon.”
-- Magnet Magazine
