Hollow Water - Review/Feature - Up & Coming Instrumental UK Act!




Hollow Water are a instrumental two-piece outfit, consisting of Huw Roberts on guitar, and Alan Cookson on keyboards/drum programming. Based in Aberystwyth, Wales, UK they have created a strange and wonderful sound, so why not take some time to listen and appreciate their previously released material, in time for their interesting upcoming sci-fi album, "Rainbow's End", featuring a diverse range of musicians from all over the world, in what is to be a concept album inspired by an original photo taken by member, Alan Cookson..

"A New Idea That Won't Get Finished" has a mellow majestic feel, created through the synth sounds from Alan, and pleasant harmonious guitar work from Huw. It has a great overall ambient presence and progresses well throughout, making it an enjoyable track to help wash away your troubles..and although the title suggests an idea won't get finished..rest assured their upcoming concept album will be finished by the turn of the year!

The oddly titled, "Watermelon Man" is an interesting and diverse instrumental number, that is assertive, yet chilled and features some superb guitar licks, and kooky wonderful sounds, that are a bit out of this world!


"Guanaco" has a very cool vibe, with a strong melody and far reaching sounds that create a massive crazy fun atmosphere, for this animal inspired tribute to the elegant native 'guanaco' from South America! Bit random, but it works! Towards the end especially, we are treated to some super groovy guitar work and fitting bizarre synths to accompany!

"Witch's Broom Remix" showcases a different sound for them, with a more urgent serious and chaotic sound, and yet again contains some slick guitars and bad-ass beats and rhythms that create suspense. This is extremely catchy, and it sounds like they are in their element with this darker rock instrumental piece! This would be the perfect track to draw you in if you haven't come across Hollow Water yet! I hope to hear more like this on their upcoming sci-fi inspired album, "Rainbow's End"!

Voi and Luger told us: “This is now just a continuation of what we have been doing all our lives and only now in our 'older age' we have done something serious. Of course when it comes to music, at least for us, we wanted to record an album with some of the best musicians in metal music and the ones that we listened to when we were kids. We are not saying that this is something special what we are doing, but this means a lot to us and basically we are doing this for ourselves and our closest friends first but also for all the metal fans around the world who we hope are going to like our new music.
