are an interesting band for an interesting time. They manage to sound punky and impulsive while creating convincing and well-thought out garage pop. As three musicians who all have ties in DC, but were spontaneously reunited in California, Happy Hollows is a band with a sense of unity as well as urgency; their panicked, quirky guitars running in tandem with each other like a goofy dance. The so called "catchy chaos" can be attributed to several factors, the fuzzed voice of lead vocalist Sarah Negahdari, the schizophrenic guitar lines, or the sudden and immediate shifts in tone occurring anywhere, including mid-track.
