Earlier this week, one of Elmore’s “On the Radar” bands, Hollis Brown, embarked on a U.S. Spring tour with the Zombies. After hitting the NY music scene hard for the past several years, Hollis Brown has sharpened chops and remained true to their rootsy rock ‘n’ roll aesthetic. It’s not hard to see why the band has since graduated to bigger stages. Here’s a band that doesn’t rest on their laurels. Next month, Hollis Brown will hop the Atlantic and tour Europe through June, but not before treating New Yorkers with a bon voyage party. Catch these boys at on May 15 at Rough Trade NYC. And for Lou Reed/Velvet Undergound fans, check out their tribute, Hollis Brown Gets Loaded just released on Record Store Day.
