"Hollow Spheres Release New EP"
Heels & Picks: Honolulu Pulse (Honolulu Star Advertiser)
(Erin Smith, Jul. 29, 2015)


"Review: Hollow Spheres ‘Wanderlust’"
Poet and Pariah: Malady, Music, and Mayhem
(Evan Morgan, Jun. 20, 2015)
"Integrating melody-driven pop with singer/songwriter sensibility is just a snippet of what they do best."

"‘Wanderlust’ is equal parts wonder and lust, showcasing the Hollow Spheres at their absolute best. It’s head and shoulders above anything they’ve ever done (and could easily go down as one of the best EP’s of the year).  Listeners are invited to experience the full spectrum of what the Hollow Spheres are capable of — and it’s nothing short of brilliant."
