Those who follow Kevin Abstract quite closely will be familiar with how he keeps himself busy with a multitude of interesting projects, like that time he live-streamed himself walking on a treadmill for over 10 hours. Last year, the BROCKHAMPTON frontman was seen working with friend and rising musician Austin Anderson, who is the lead singer and songwriter of a new LA-based band called Slow Hollows. Apart from appearing in a Calvin Klein campaign together, Kevin directed an artistic music video to go with the release of Slow Hollows’ 2018 track “Lessons for Later.” The band has returned with their latest song “Get Along,” alongside vivid new visuals.
Slow Hollows’ Austin Anderson has worked behind the scenes with some big names, like with Tyler, The Creator on Flower Boy, or with Frank Ocean on Blonde. The singer is joined by bandmates Jackson Katz, Aaron Jassenoff and Daniel Fox – a quartet made up of talents on the trumpet, bass, guitar and drums. Often associated to that of an indie/post-punk sound, the band has three albums under their belt, so far, with Romantic as the most previous to come out.
“Get Along” starts off with warping synths and mellowed out vocals. A shimmering rhythm guides the accompanying visuals with a split screen playing out two narratives: One side shows a live performance of the song soaked under flashing lights, the other half offers vignettes of his daily life. The song delves into the idea of redemption as Anderson pens verses about reconciling with a loved one. Measuring at approximately 3:50 minutes, the track is produced by Anderson and Daniel Fox, with additional composition from Björn Yttling.
