Emerging duo LoneHollow explore the slippery side of seduction for the new track, “Slide Over,” premiering exclusively on Sounds Like Nashville today (April 7).
Featuring a fat-bottomed electric blues sound and the flirtatious vocal of a juke-joint temptress, the track is the work of singer Rylie Bourne and guitarist Damon Atkins — and it’s hard to ignore.
Full of mystery and built on the swampy foundations of Southern rock, “Slide Over” is all foot-stomping beats and steady-thumping bass, conjuring images of a smoky roadhouse and a night that’s about to go sideways. It’s part of the newcomer duo’s self-titled EP — which is set to arrive Friday (April 9) — and although LoneHollow say their roots lie in country and bluegrass, “Slide Over” finds them embracing their inner rock star.
In fact, with Atkins’ dueling himself on a rowdy distorted slide guitar, the track is something of a tribute to a blues-rock master.
“Though this was our first time covering a song, we could easily hear why Alex Torrez (producer) suggested that we cut it,” the band says in a statement to SLN. “We got together to hash out a demo and it really grew from there. We loved having the chance to rock it out a bit and show that edge to our music. Damon really sussed out the guitar parts/tones and the solo is our best attempt at ‘What would Bonnie Raitt do…?'”
“Slide Over” is part of LoneHollow’s upcoming self-titled EP, arriving April 9 and featuring five new songs — each one a different look at the head-spinning contrasts of love. The band was formed in Nashville three years ago and has also released the singles “Not Today” and “I Don’t Love You Anymore.”
