Single review: Sulka – Hollow Days

‘Hollow Days’ is the latest single from recording project Sulka. Brought to you by Glasgow’s Lucas Clasen, this highly endearing lo-fi number has a warm energy that soothes the soul.

The most recent single from Sulka’s album Take Care, ‘Hollow Days’ drifts along a melodic stream of soft scuzz-rock. The woeful lyrics and Clasen’s gentle murmurs are paired alongside sweet guitar that lifts the song and emphasises the hopeful tone. On par with the aesthetic, Sulka self-produces, engineers and plays all of the instruments on his home-made recordings.

This single comes after a string of animated tracks released from Take Care, which came out earlier this year, as part of Lost Map’s PostMap Club subscription service. The full album can be purchased on Bandcamp with the option of a limited edition cassette featuring illustrations and lyrics by Clasen himself.

‘Hollow Days’ is out now via Lost Map Records
