The Hollow Ends is an American folk-rock project from St. Louis, which can range in size from a full band to songwriter Zachary Schwartz performing solo. Leftfield musically and occasionally also politically, this hybrid fusion is sure to delight, as on Little Devil.
New Orleans brass embraces folk rhythms, punk guitar and country flourishes on a track that takes the spirit of 1930’s Blues and places it in a very theatrical milieu. That might sound like an unusual and unlikely concoction, but it’s all held together with considerable aplomb by Schwartz’s vocals. Able to cross genre boundaries and master the literate lyrics with ease; they provide the raw beating heart of an already pulsating song.
Little Devil Is out now and available to stream or download on all major platforms including Spotify. Be sure to check The Hollow Ends out over on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter and throw them a like or two to keep up with news about the song, as well as live dates including December 7th in their home town.
