Indie-Folk Duo Hollow Coves Embrace a Change of Season on New Song “Letting Go”

October 20, 2023 BY Emma Orland

Today, beloved indie-folk duo Hollow Coves follow up “Harder to Fake It” with the timely new song “Letting Go.” The earthy acoustics and breezy rhythms provide a soundtrack to the feeling of change. The essence of shifting one’s perspective is a theme Ryan Henderson and Matt Carins meditate on as they go through their own musical evolution. For their next project, they invited friend and acclaimed Aussie artist Matt Corby to help co-produce and bring their new songs to life. Listen to “Letting Go” on all digital retailers (here).

“The song is all about letting go and moving on into a new season of life,” the band explains. “I feel like it’s so easy to get caught up in the feeling of being trapped when everything is going wrong and thinking nothing will ever change. A small shift in your mind or a change of space like moving back to your hometown where you can be vulnerable with the people that actually care about you.”

“Letting Go” follows “Harder to Fake It” mark the start of a new era for Hollow Coves. After amassing over 1-billion streams worldwide, cracking the Top 20 most used songs on Instagram Reels, and performing to euphoric crowds around the world, it’s clear Matt and Ryan have a gift for connecting with people.

Stay tuned for more from Hollow Coves.
