Hollow Twin: Low Clouds

A dark folk tune featuring haunting vocals and evocative strings.

Hollow Twin: Low Clouds

By Kerry Doole

Hollow Twin - Low Clouds (Independent): The sound of this Vancouver duo has been termed "dark folk," a fitting soundtrack for these omicronic days. Hollow Twin releases a new album, Soft Hearts on Jan. 21, preceded by this single.

“The song is about processing the thoughts of someone who was once the closest person to you fading to a point that you don’t remember what once was,” says lyricist and lead vocalist, Becky Wosk, in a press release. The film Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is cited as an inspiration.

The track features haunting vocals, harmonies, and imaginatively-arranged instrumentation (violin, cello, french horn). The production work of Jon Raham is top-notch, and the song is gently captivating. It would fit well on a playlist alongside such other Vancouver folk acts as Suzie Ungerleider and The Be Good Tanyas (perhaps the city's rain encourages melancholy folk music).


Wosk and bandmate Emmalee Watts have been making music together for nine years, releasing three EPs along the way, and they now deserve increased national recognition. We await the new album eagerly.

An album release show was planned for Jan. 21 at Vancouver's Fox Cabaret but had to be postponed. A new date is TBA.

Neil Young's Love Earth Tour Will Take Him Throughout Canada

The Canadian icon is bringing his Love Earth Tour with Crazy Horse to Winnipeg, Edmonton, Calgary and Burnaby. He's also added a second date at Toronto's Budweiser Stage, accompanying the release of his new album, FU##IN' UP.

Neil Young is showing some love to Canadian cities on his Love Earth tour. While his original tour announcement featured just one stop in his home country, in Toronto's Budweiser Stage, he's now announced dates in Manitoba, Alberta and B.C., as well as a second show at Toronto's Budweiser Stage, in response to "incredible fan demand."

The original tour was set to kick off in San Diego at the end of April and finish in Chicago in May. These five new dates pick things back up in July, with stops in Toronto, Edmonton, Calgary, and Young's hometown of Winnipeg. The tour finishes at Deer Lake Park in Burnaby B.C.
