Discovery: Hidden Pillars

Hidden Pillars are an alternative rock band based in Townsville, Australia. They’ve just hit my radar through their emotional new track. It’s called Shattered.

By Graeme Smith

Shattered is a track that builds. It opens with a lonesome electric guitar riff, to which is added bass, percussion and mournful vocals. There’s a sense of conflict, of inner struggles, but also hints of hope that come to the fore as the track reaches it soaring, cathartic climax.

Inspired by the likes of Nothing But Thieves, Royal Blood and Wolf Alice, Hidden Pillars put their own spin on contemporary indie rock. They’re certainly ones to watch. I can’t wait to hear more from them.
