New York-based and with a preference for all things post-punk, Bell Hollow may appear to be jumping on the bandwagon to join in with the current music trends. However, what makes them rather different is that the band members were part of the original scene and thus have genuine experience to call on. As a track title like 'Getting On In Years' might suggest, this experience is used to effect on their first EP which sounds almost effortlessly like it's 1981 and The Comsat Angels are in town; the songs are brooding and burning with restrained passion. Key track 'Lowlights' features a rumbling bassline, glistening Chameleon-like guitar work, crisp percussion and Nick Niles' youthful vocals which add a pleasant lightness of touch. Although lasting a mere fifteen minutes, it's a classy, vintage product from start to finish.
