Bell Hollow's debut full-length, Foxgloves, infuses modern musical currents with a painfully rich romance between shadowy post-punk and shoegaze; the contemplative, bittersweet sensuality of the songs entrances and ensnares with an oceanic pull... Foxgloves has its classic touchstones (The Cure, The Chameleons, Cocteau Twins, The Smiths), but the sonic, thematic, and lyrical content on the album showcases Bell Hollow's original artistry, positioning them at the forefront of the new wave of dream pop.
- Kristen Sollee (The Big Takeover)

Now available for pre-order (ships 10/8/07) on five03 Records.

Bell Hollow's first LI show at Mr. Beery's in Bethpage, where the music is loud and the brews overfloweth.

"New York-based and with a preference for all things post-punk, Bell Hollow may appear to be jumping on the bandwagon to join in with the current music trends. However, what makes them rather different is that the band members were part of the original scene and thus have genuine experience to call on. As a track title like 'Getting On In Years' might suggest, this experience is used to effect on their first EP which sounds almost effortlessly like it's 1981 and The Comsat Angels are in town; the songs are brooding and burning with restrained passion. Key track 'Lowlights' features a rumbling bassline, glistening Chameleon-like guitar work, crisp percussion and Nick Niles' youthful vocals which add a pleasant lightness of touch. Although lasting a mere fifteen minutes, it's a classy, vintage product from start to finish." ― Jonathan Leonard (Leonard’s Lair, Jan. 2006)

"Bell Hollow invokes all of the moody, ethereal elements of The Cure, Cocteau Twins and Radiohead. The dark, emotionally wrought songs on their demo might lull you into sweet submission for a moment, but the unexpected turns into dissonant territory will keep you on your toes. Vocalist Nick Niles’ haunting tenor recalls Thom Yorke, Dave Gahan and Morrissey and maintains the atmospherics while adding a touch of bitterness to the equation. And unlike some bands in the post-punk/shoegaze vein, Bell Hollow does not indulge in those extended repetitive sonic explorations that run the risk of losing the listener. You wanna listen? You know you do..." - Kristen Sollee (“Shadowtime”, BigTakeover.com, December 4, 2005)

Just a hello.
Just a hello, seems pretty dead in here.. Maybe this will stir it up. :) Anyone as grouchy as me that the band split up again? (Yes I know, old news) Hmm.. Kinda in a music rut these days, so what do you all listen to? Currently I'm going back and forth between The Sound/Adrian Borland, Sad Loveers & Giants..stuff like that. Well anywho..

Current Mood: mellow
