Hollands is a duo from NYC consisting of multi-instrumentalist John-Paul Norpoth and violinist Jannina Barefield whose EP Faces has been bubbling under since Fall 2008. They have played on Akron/Family albums, albeit on two different ones and never as a twosome. Well orchestrated and crytstal clear recorded the five tracks on the EP features upbeat rock (Strong Arm), dreamy folk (Anomie) and the delicate (Coughing Boy).
Recorded March 2005 - August 2007 at various studios and homes the question that comes to mind the most is: why only five songs?
Faces is a self-released album. Buy it from the band's website.
