Video: Eryn Allen Kane – “Hollow”

A simple concept well-executed can prove far more captivating than a complex one marred by lackluster delivery. The video for Chicago singer Eryn Allen Kane’s “Hollow” focuses on her painted face, floating in a shallow pool of opaque, white water. Her voice–enchanting and smoky, pop-leaning with the lithe musicality of jazz singer–and expressions take center stage, fitting for a song composed entirely of mesmerizing vocals. Free of gimmicks, “Hollow” captivates because of a certain nakedness, a stripping to essentials crafted with flair and emotions. Watch it above.
