On the axis of grand olde English eccentricity, Hollow Hand nestle somewhere between The Kinks, Dexy's Midnight Runners and Neil Innes; sweet, starry-eyed melodies with battleship-sized hooks.

It helps that their front man, Max Kinghorn-Mills, is a dead ringer for Ray Davies, and that the band record everything to tape in Cosmic Ocean, their home studio space - a throwback to the glory days of Victorian amateurism. But Hollow Hand's songs aren't hoary old relics of the British Invasion; in the realms of indie production, it is as cutting edge as it gets. As Davies himself memorably put it; "Preserving the old ways from being abused / Protecting the new ways for me and for you."

We at the 405 are big, big fans of Hollow Hand. We premiered their debut single and video 'End of Everything' last summer, swooned at follow-up 'A World Outside', and have been keenly awaiting the arrival of a full debut album that already sounds like a minor pop classic. The new video for 'Blackberry Wine' was shot in their flat in Brighton for the princely sum of £31.67 - the song is available now through Talk Show Records.
