Join us at 7PM this Friday, 4/16 to hear The Happy Hollows play live on KSPC!
The Happy Hollows are a raucous three piece indie-rock band from Los Angeles that play fast and irreverent noise-pop. The group is fronted by Sarah Negahdari (vocals/guitar) and held together by the rhythm section of Charlie Mahoney (bass/vocals) and Chris Hernandez (drums/vocals). The L.A. Times has described their sound as a “pugilistic mix of stinging guitars, turbulent rhythms, and shouted vocals” that “alternates between childlike experimentation and ferocious firestorm.” The AllMusic guide wrote that the band’s “appeal is immediate” and the Rock Insider Blog has characterized their live show as “explosive”. Nylon Magazine described their sound as “lo-fi distortion” mixed with “Kim Deal-esque vocals and racing rhythms.”
The Happy Hollows write melodic and quirky songs with odd arrangements. Among other things, the subjects of their tunes include Vietnam flashbacks, palindromes, the colors of the rainbow, labyrinths, time travel, mythical animals, and Tarot cards.
The band has opened for Deerhoof, Silversun Pickups, Japandroids, Earlimart, Midnight Movies, The Mae Shi, and WHY? among others.
