On the closing lines of their new song “Photographs”, the ascendant Brisbane duo offer something of a mission statement for their next chapter and upcoming album: “She loved taking photographs / I love the way she never let the moment pass…”  they sing.


An ode to preserving, cherishing, and appreciating amidst the oversaturation and ephemera of the digital age, Hollow Coves explain of the song’s genesis: 


“We ended up having a conversation in the studio about how photographs used to be something special that people would keep in a photo album. However, now that we can take photos with our phones, it seems like photos will most likely just get lost amongst the sea of photos. Matt (Carins) brought up that his mum has kept a photo album for him and his siblings since they were born. We all thought that was pretty special and kind of a lost art in this day and age. So we decided to write a song about her and the lost art of the photograph.”


It was in the pages of this childhood photo book that Hollow Coves’ Matt Carins and Ryan Henderson would find the initial ideas for their first new album in five years. Looking to overcome the anxiety and burnout that accompany the relentless pace of the modern world, ‘Nothing To Lose’ takes its inspiration from re-learning to appreciate our day-to-day: early morning surf trips on Australia’s Gold Coast, getting lost in the expansive national parks of the American West, the slow-and-steady craftsmanship of film or vinyl or woodworking. The resultant album is one that touches on all aspects of our path through life, from silver linings and feelings of moving on (“Milk & Honey”, “Letting Go”), to the importance of family (“Photographs”) and following your dreams (“On The Way”, “Let’s Go”), or just having that faith to be yourself (“Harder To Fake It”, “Nothing To Lose”).

Teaming-up with many collaborators from their close-knit, beach-town musical community, ‘Nothing To Lose’ serves as a striking reminder of the often-underestimated powers of gratitude, perspective and simplicity as we navigate the modern world. Produced by fellow Aussie songwriter and ARIA-winning producer Matt Corby at his Rainbow Valley Studio with the assistance of Alex Henrikkson, Chris Collins – plus Matt Carins’ wife Molly and brother Ryan the band’s second album finds Hollow Coves honing their sunshine gilded melodies and poignant lyricism to create ten buoyant, and often beautiful, new songs. Of its evocative title, ‘Nothing to Lose’ the band add:
“After spending a bit of time with the title track and the name of it, we realised that “Nothing To Lose” had a common thread over the whole album and it would work perfectly for the album title. It was just so iconic that none of it was planned and that name just ended up being the one.”

‘Nothing To Lose’ will include new single “Photographs”, alongside well-received 2023 singles “On The Way”, “Milk and Honey”, “Letting Go” and “Harder To Fake It”. The full tracklist for the album can be found below. 

In 2024, Hollow Coves will return to the UK, Europe and North America to play to larger crowds than ever before – bringing their “stunning harmonies” (Billboard) to “songs that belong on the same shelf as Jackson Browne, Arcade Fire and early Ben Howard” (The Sunday Times).  The UK and European dates are listed as follows:
