about

Hollands' debut EP was recorded between March 2005 and August 2007, and released in 2008. A brief five-song affair that lasts a bit more than 20 minutes, it's not long or distinctive enough to leave you with much of a sense of where this band's coming from. Guitarist John-Paul Norpoth leaves the heaviest imprint as the sole songwriter, his singing and composing both espousing a vague aura of dissatisfaction and weariness. His wandering, slightly sing-speak vocal phrasing is set against varying backgrounds of lightly funky alternative rock, delicate folk-rock, and dark post-punk, "Coughing Boy" working best owing to its effective and understated strings. ~ Richie Unterberger, Rovi

about

Hollands New York

Hollands is the musical knee scrapes of John-Paul Norpoth and Jannina Norpoth. One part musical plastic, two parts rhythmic "ether", three shakes of the finest education money can buy and "POOF" - one happy, "hippity", "hoppity", cloud of joy-dust- racket-muff.

Catch Hollands in New York City and Brooklyn playing with Laptops, Strings, Beats, and Mr. Boombastic.
