The Rotations are an indie rock band from Glasgow, Scotland. Their “about” section on their Facebook page simply states “yER mAKKIN uS sEEK wAe yER BIO dRIVEL” and their personal interests include “guns, drugs, and revolution”. When asked for a bio, the band responded with “The Unfriendliest Band in Scotland.” This is exactly the way a truly rebellious band should answer such questions. On June 8th, 2018 The Rotations released 5 tracks on their Bandcamp Page to add to their already extensive discography, one of which is the song “Hollow Point”.
“Hollow Point” begins with an eccentric drum pattern and is one by one joined by other instruments. The layering of sounds and tones is unique and gives the song a cool and experimental vibe as the tension builds with each expanding note. The vocals are the perfect mix of creepy and attitude, mellow but with a steady swagger. It builds until the song breaks open into a multi tiered musical section. Each instrument is in its own world but when added to each other they create an expressive soundscape full of strange noises and powerful phrases backed up by an aggressive bass line and cracking drums. The short and poignant song says all it needs to in a little over two minutes. You can listen to “Hollow Point” and follow The Rotations on the links below.
