Autumn Hollow Releases Americana EP, Throw the House on June 17
BOSTON (April 12, 2022) – Autumn Hollow announces the release of their three-song Americana EP on June 17 through Oak Honest Records. Their first new recordings since 2013, the three-song EP features a reconstituted band led by singer/songwriter Brendan Murphy and a refreshed outlook on writing and performing.
Took all my windows
And tore ‘em off the wall
Tore all of the walls
Down to the foundation
– “Si Viene Si Va”
There is a lived-in joy to the songs on Throw the House, a sense of gratitude for the opportunity to build and rebuild no matter how much everyday life tears you down. Murphy’s hopes and struggles come across in songs like “Si Viene Si Va.” He says, “That was the first song that I wrote when I was able to write again. Si viene si va is an Italian phrase, that means ‘comes and it goes.’ That idea was really important during that time. I just needed to have more energy and more happiness. Even if you’re writing something that might seem sad or depressing or whatever, you still need those things.” “Meantime/Between Time” centers around the necessity to exist in the moment. It baked inside of Murphy as he sat in the moment listening to Manchester Orchestra’s song, “The Maze”. “Pick up my pills and pick up my kids and hope that one won’t react with the other,” Murphy sings on “Rooting for Laundry.” The sound is often centered around the acoustic guitar and Murphy’s earnest vocal delivery triangulated somewhere between Bruce Springsteen’s bedroom records and Fleet Foxes’ rootsy rock and roll.
