The much anticipated follow up to 2008’s “Along Came The Devil One Night” sees Scrimshire going back to his soulful roots, but at the same time, carving a more contemporary, electronic sound. There’s also a nod to the dance floor on the new single “Home”, featuring Faye Houston of Resonators fame; the latin flavoured “Everything You Say” with Cinematic Orchetra’s Heidi Vogel on vocal duties; and the epic “Ascension” featuring Hackney Colliery Band. There are more mellow moments too of course – Stac provides the voice for the sublime “Alignment” and joins the man himself on the mic for “Through A Window”; long time collaborator Inga Lill-Aker is sure to draw a tear on the stunning “Ode To Daddy”; and Scrimshire takes on the vocals once again on the melancholic opener “A Promise Is All It Was”. Add to that the dark, keyboard led trip that is “Afar” featuring Jessica Lauren and Matthew Halsall’s harpist Rachael Gladwin bringing matters to an exquisite close on the title track. „The Hollow“ is now available via Bandcamp.
