The Happy Hollows
The Happy Hollows
Art-rock duo Happy Hollows is the unlikeliest of matches, founded by two polar opposites: Northern California native and free-spirited guitarist Sarah Negahdari and graduate student and bassist Charlie Mahoney. The two initially met at a Los Angeles strip mall where Sarah was reading tarot cards to pay the bills. Charlie had just moved to Los Angeles from Washington, D.C. to pursue a Ph.D. Hundreds of shows and two albums later Happy Hollows is gearing up to release Concordia, its third studio album.

Concordia, was crafted in both Los Angeles and London with the help of producers Lewis Pesacov (Best Coast) and Gareth Jones (Grizzly Bear, Depeche Mode, Interpol). On the album, the band uses analog-synth melodies, angular guitars, and polyrhythmic drumming to anchor Sarah’s vibrant vocals. Lead single “Way Home” has already been tapped by Spotify as a New Music Friday must listen while Jay-Z’s streaming service Tidal said the album “perfectly captures the angst and anguish that is love gone bad.”

A fierce and playful woman in indie music world, Sarah’s magnetic stage presence and striking musical prowess helped put Happy Hollows at the center of Los Angeles' underground music scene when the band released their debut album, Spells, to critical acclaim. Pitchfork raved that Sarah was “an obvious talent” and “powerful guitarist who juts in and out of songs like a jagged saw” while Wired Magazine wrote “Sarah is simply murder on the guitar!”

On Amethyst, the band’s second album, Happy Hollows immersed themselves in a newfound sense of sonic experimentation, incorporating melodic guitar lines and lush synthesizers to create soundscapes that propel Sarah’s soaring, spirited vocals. On the album, Boxx Magazine described Sarah as “an incredibly enthusiastic musician...full of energy, gratitude and dynamism.”

Concordia, released on September 8, is a true blend of expressive, post-punk instrumentation and neo-new wave flair that represents the culmination of Happy Hollows’ artistic development. The band will be hitting the road in fall 2017 to support the album.
