Haunting tones are the embodiment of “Hollow,” a new track by armin van Buuren and Avira featuring Be No Rain. This synergy between the respective sounds of its creators make “Hollow” a sophisticated song with underlying meanings that must be translated by the listener.
According to Armin van Buuren, “I’ve been a big fan of the Melodic Techno/Tech House scene, as you’ve all probably heard during my warm-up set for A State Of Trance 950. It has inspired me so much that I wanted to explore that sound myself, and I loved the amazing records AVIRA put out on Armada Music recently. I contacted him to see if he would be interested in working together on a new record and I was stoked when he said yes.‘Hollow’ is what we made of it, and I couldn’t be happier with the end result.”
Avira shares, “The idea for ‘Hollow’ was to bridge a gap between all dance music lovers. Whether they’re into progressive house, melodic techno or trance, we wanted to take the listeners on a journey of our vision for the future of dance music. ‘Hollow’ turned out exactly the way we wanted and is a great start to all things still to come.”
Be No Rain, on the other hand, explains, “The instrumental that Armin and AVIRA sent me had such a beautiful contour, it moved from total sparsity to something harmonically opulent. I thought it sounded like the process of salvation that can be triggered by love. The lyrics are about a man who feels severed from the world around him. Slowly he’s coaxed out of this alienation by the love that he’s found. As the richness of the final chord progression seeps in, he finds himself restored and the vocals give way to the pure, joyous catharsis of the drop.”
