CLOUD TAPES Create Harmonious Virbations On New Track ‘HOLLOW’…

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

9 October 2018

New York indie trio CLOUD TAPES is about to release their third longplayer sometime soon. But first, they’ll release some songs that don’t quite fit on the LP/line up with what the future material will sound like. Here’s one they played for a while now at concerts, called HOLLOW, released for the first time.

“I wrote this song in August 2013 while I was on my brother’s bachelor party in Costa Rica. One of those nights, everyone went out and I decided to just stay in bed and listen to music. After I took my headphones off, music didn’t stop playing in my head. The song playing in my head was ‘Hollow’. In a lot of ways I feel like I didn’t write it. I feel like I was just the scribe making
sure that it was recorded correctly…”
says singer/songwriter John Samaras.

Hollow sounds like if The Beach Boys were an indie band creating a subtle, captivating harmonious pop sound with an urban instead of a beach feel, with a vitalizing variety
of different guitar colors, a relaxing drum/bass pace, pondering vocals and, of course,
a sticky melody with a tender resonance. Good vibrations indeed. Catch them here…

Hollow
Filled-in empty spaces
Traveled many places
To find no one

Wallow
Bask in deprivation
Just a past sensation
That still rings true

Situational feeling that constantly lingers
The air is just so heavy, it’s not getting any clearer
If its such a drag, then why are you still here?

Leaving
Searching for some purpose
And it’s not on purpose
If I don’t write home

Sleepless
Nights that I’ve wasted
Waiting for elation
That never comes

Situational feeling that constantly lingers
The air is just so heavy, it’s not getting any clearer
If its such a drag, then why are you still here?

Farewell
It was fun while it lasted
My welcome, I surpassed it
I’m moving on
