Following the release of the first new single, ‚All That Is True Dies‘ in April, HALLOWS now finally present their full-length debut album ‚All That Is True‘ on June 4th, 2021.
After their five-song EP, ‚Subtle‘, ‚All That Is True‘ sees HALLOWS drastically grow as a band. The album witnesses the duo explore deeper into sound design and atmosphere, taking risks and unorthodox approaches to their home-base of darkwave/post-punk. With the flair of Seattle producer Aaron C. Schroeder, All That Is True displays HALLOWS‘ growing maturity as a band and their desire to explore further into their genre, while pulling influence from an eclectic array of music and art.
While Subtle explored longing, loneliness, and sadness, ‚All That Is True‘ explores themes of searching for a purpose, coming to terms with loss, and garnering the strength to face adversity. The album was written mostly during times of unrest in Seattle (and the world) where both V and D witnessed the brutality of oppression first hand. These experiences served as inspiration for much of this output, pouring out angst, rebellion, and the drive to march towards a brighter future. Though the album is not explicitly political, it explores the emotional journey of existing in an unjust world.
Influences for this record include Mogwai, TR/ST, Houses of Heaven, House of Harm, Massive Attack, Lust For Youth, Traitrs.
HALLOWS is duo consisting of Vanee D. and Dom R. started in Minneapolis in 2018, migrated to Seattle. The band explores themes of unease and loneliness in their music, staying true to the darkwave/post-punk genre while incorporating influences from various other genres and art forms.
