Vortex Music Magazine is premiering our latest installment of our In the Hollow series today: "Band of Comerados take a look at the timeless struggle of nature versus nurture in their warm, elegant folk song "Where Was The Love?" In it, the protagonist's heart has grown dark and cold over time. His feelings could be due to his position in life and the lifestyle he has chosen—traveling as a vagabond, seeking the happiness and love he once had but only finding temporary love while constantly asking the question of where the love in his heart truly came from."

The Bay Bridged premiered the video yesterday, and did an awesome write up on it. "As you might guess from the title, the tender track tackles the pressures of art and success and the nigh-impossible platitudes leveled at artists who want more — especially (we're assuming) young people, and especially ones that in this region.
