Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…
4 November 2019
A couple of weeks ago Canadian psych-rockers ELEPHANT STONE released
stomping lead-single ‘LAND OF DEAD‘ from their forthcoming new album.
And here’s another fresh cut called ‘HOLLOW WORLD‘.
The band’s main man Rishi Dhir shines a light on the song’s sentiments: ‘If social media has taught us anything, it’s that there are a lot of unhappy people out there who are trying to find a way out. They are looking for meaning and something to believe in… or nothing to believe in… I
set forth writing a song-suite telling of a world of unhappy souls who have lost connection
with each other. The storyline touches upon the plundering/poisoning of their home, the elite, demagogues, false idols, the truth as seen by children, and, ultimately, the fight for the survival of their species. ‘Hollow World’ is where it all begins.”
Despite the pessimistic tone of the song it resonates, melodiously, like a multi-colored sonic rainbow with a harmonious and melancholic Beatles-esque feel. ‘Hollow World‘ is
not a great place to be in but in the end the indispensable strength of hope will survive.
So hopefully, new generations will learn today enough in order to move forward in the right direction in the future.
