Brick + Mortar
Hollow Tune

We had the pleasure of catching the riveting, quirky, and wildly entertaining Brick + Mortar when they made their way to Denver this summer. Set on the main stage at The Underground Music Showcase, they quickly won over a crowd during a set in the early evening. And, of course, one of the fan favorites was their hit tune, “Hollow Tune.”

Released nearly a year ago, “Hollow Tune” starts off with an ample amount of whimsy, only to head into a procession of booming percussion, soaring melodies, and incredibly uplifting lyrics. Sang with a powerful vocal prowess, each and every word latches quickly, making it a tune you can’t quickly shake.

Lyrics like those deserve quite the visual representation, and thanks to the Denver-based Blurred Pictures, they most certainly do now. Riffing off of the powerful line “You’re not alone,” Blurred and the band crafted a story line revolving around a gay veteran, who has returned home from war, and a tough-to-watch hate crime. The end result is raw, real, and powerful.

Take a look at what Brick + Mortar had to say about their collective vision for the video, then watch below.

We make music for people who believe in equality and acceptance for everyone regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, or belief. This song was written about love to say: ‘You’re not alone, I’m not alone,’ to the one you love. Love is love period. – via Out
