Boston Americana rockers Autumn Hollow are back with Throw the House, out June 17. 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.
Autumn Hollow had been in stasis following the release of their self-titled 2013 release. The band had drifted apart, and personal struggles had killed Murphy’s desire to write new songs and lead a band. The eponymous album was a polished effort, but something broke in the process. “We tried to make a popular record, a record that a lot of people would like,” says Murphy. “That’s not how that works. That’s not how great music or great art is ever made.”
