Gothenburg psychedelic combo Hollow Ship returns with "Utsuro Bune", their first piece of new music in years following the release of the acclaimed debut LP Future Remains

"Mixing psych, prog, and the heavier end of the soundtrack spectrum, the band creates a work of sweeping sonics and auditory tension" – Raven Sings The Blues

Listen to "Utsuro Bune" via Spotify, Apple Music etc
As premiered on Raven Sings the Blues

Hollow Ship presents the first track in a series of songs written for their Space Motion Show, a live visual collaboration with artist and animator Freddy Wallin. Unworldly haunting melodies and heavy beats, leaning towards hard rock, showcasing the band's most ambitious traits, while further expanding the Hollow Ship universe. A sonic tale of a 19th century Japanese UFO sighting, produced by the band and mastered by Daniel Ögren of Dina Ögon.

"Last year we worked a lot on a visual collaboration with artist and animator Freddy Wallin. For the concerts that followed, me and the band wrote a series of instrumental music pieces to accompany Freddy's visuals. Utsuro Bune is the first of those to be released. The track has a mysterious vibe, which matches its name, taken from a Japanese UFO tale. The legend of Utsuro Bune is one of the reasons we chose our band name in the first place and when we recorded the track, we revisited the sound of Hollow Ship's early analogue recordings."
– Thomas Frank, guitarist and singer in Hollow Ship
