HOLLOW BRANCHES: New EP Available For Free Download

HOLLOW BRANCHES, one of the many projects in which Jason Walton (AGALLOCH, SELF SPILLER), Robert Hunter (CONVERSATIONS ABOUT THE LIGHT) and Marius Sjøli (FORMLOFF) are involved, has just released its new EP. Thematically inspired by dreams, insomnia, nostalgia and morning, "Anchored in Sleep" finds HOLLOW BRANCHES expanding its sound with elements of progressive and post rock, as well as glitch. Drawing from a variety of influences, including DAVID SYLVIAN, LANDBERK and PORCUPINE TREE, this EP is perfect for the cold winter days ahead.

"Anchored in Sleep" is now available for free download from the band's MySpace page.

More than 5,000 miles separates the members of HOLLOW BRANCHES, they have only been in the same room a handful of times, each is in several other bands, and none of this is likely to change. In spite of these obstacles, HOLLOW BRANCHES has managed to record two EPs in 2009 alone.

With a sound equal parts ambient, rock and trip hop, HOLLOW BRANCHES' first EP, "Words are Fire", received a digital release in February and was downloaded no less than 500 times.
