Hollywood Blanks is part of an Indie Rock Resurgence. Angry, unconventional and expressive lyrics are belted over an undulating rhythmic core of drums, cowboy chords and highly effected bass, while howling organs and guitars swirl around the remaining frequencies. These elements rise and fall together to create liberating moments of intensity.
The Blanks provide a sort of "rock through the ages" as they mix elements of folk, grunge, punk, metal, outlaw country, psych-rock, blues and soul. Instead of contradicting each other, they are able to combine these elements to create a powerful cathartic concoction that revives the raw character of Indie Rock in a distinct and satisfying way.
