English alternative pop band, The Hallows, are set to release their single, Angel, and their much anticipated album, Of Time and Tides, on August 26th.

But it wasn’t until listening back to their first single that they even came up with their band name.

‘I woke up one morning and it suddenly seemed an obvious choice,’ says Joe Rodriguez, one third of The Hallows.

‘It’s believed that the four elements – air, fire, earth and water – are known as ‘hallows’, and they feature strongly in the lyrics of our songs, so we all felt the name was a perfect fit.’

Alongside Joe (drums) is Sarah Rodriguez (vocals/keys/synth) and Dave Pugh (bass). Together, it’s a sassy triptych that formed in London in 2014 after a decade of hanging out and gigging together.

The vision of The Hallows is to ‘create punchy, atmospheric pop with a big sound’, and feel free to quote us on that. It’s intelligent, grown-up pop, with erudite lyrics, dreamy melodies, and vocals that are reminiscent of a bit of Kate Bush here, a bit of Tori Amos there. And in this age of over-production and showing off, it’s a sound we’ve been craving – and one that delivers an infectious idiosyncrasy all of its own.

Unsurprisingly, The Hallows’ musical influences are all the right names. From Motown through to Beethoven via your harder rock, they include Nina Simone, Jeff Buckley and Fleetwood Mac (Sarah), Queen, Radiohead and The Police (Joe), and over in Dave’s corner we have The Beatles, Queens Of The Stoneage and Rage Against The Machine.

And Sarah’s CV is pretty rammed. While touring with Hafdis Huld, she supported Paulo Nutini in the UK and France during his These Streets tour; while working at Disneyland Paris she took a turn as Snow White on the Electric Light Parade; and during the filming of Will Kevans’ Dialling Tone music video – in which Sarah played piano and also starred Russell Tovey.

Sarah has also performed live at festivals including Glastonbury, Latitude and SXSW, Joe’s drum skills have seen him added to Odery Drums’ roster of endorsed international acts, and Dave’s classically trained pianist mum can probably take credit for the Beethoven thing.

Being a three-piece also has its advantages, and not just the ‘slightly’ lower bar tab. It means the ideas bounce around with ease, rehearsals are a doddle, and there’s room for everyone to express themselves.

And after 18 months of the above, The Hallows went into Riverside Studios in Bath to put down the debut album, Of Time and Tides, alongside producer Seb Pecchia (Robert Plant’s Mighty Rearranger). Mastered by Andy ‘Hippy’ Baldwin at Metropolis Studios, London.

A tour is also slated for August – so watch this space!
