The Revue has the video for “Way Home,” the first song on Happy Hollows‘ fantastic new album Concordia. In an accompanying article, the site gives the band’s backstory and explains how Concordia relates to their previous material – Spells, a debut that thrived on “power punk-pop and garage-rock,” and Amethyst, for which they “transformed themselves” towards a more “synth-pop and electro-rock” direction. The balance between the two sides “has been perfected on… ‘Way Home,'” which the Revue says “glistens with some terrific, shimmering guitar work and the Chrissy Amphlett-like vocals of frontwoman Sarah Negahdari, who gives the song its emotion and sense of urgency. It’s a song for lost souls searching for something, anything that feels familiar, comfortable, like home.” Watch the video, which “includes footage of the band’s energetic live shows, their days in London, England, and the endless hours of writing new music and recording them,” right here.
“Way Home” is only the beginning of an album full of ebullient, driving new-wave inspired rock. After a good Adds week at NACC last week, Concordia is poised for a strong chart debut this week.
