HOLLIE SMITH - Band of Brothers: Vol 1
Released on August 1, 2011, through Soundsmith Records, Band Of Brothers, Vol:1 is the first in a series of musical projects spearheaded by Hollie Smith with the intent to experiment with different artists and aspects of production and collaboration.
In Volume 1 she joins acclaimed beat maker, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Mara TK (Electric Wire Hustle) as the two journey through soul, psychedelia and electronica.
We immediately hear a different side of Smith’s songwriting ability upon her collaboration with Mara TK. More effected, more experimental and at times her commanding vocal removes itself to a mere ghostly voice in the distance. Switching from a live band aesthetic to a project which is predominantly electronic shows a bold contrast and departure from her solo releases Long Player and Humour and the Misfortune of Others.
