"The attitude of the album is definitely DIY," says Max Kinghorn-Mills
of Hollow Hand's 3rd album. "About just doing everything yourself
and not needing to rely on anyone. That's the one thing I love about
doing this: no one has any answers for you, you are your own boss
and it's YOUR OWN ADVENTURE. It's down to you.”
This independent spirit that propels the creative process is also one
that gave birth to its title: Your Own Adventure. "The title is kind of a
mantra to summarise my philosophy when writing and recording the
album," he says. "I grew up immersing myself in all kinds of Fantasy
genres and I loved the choose your own adventure game-books of
Joe Dever. Other kinds of books I was reading throughout the writing
process pointed me towards a kind of *belief in the self' - there's no
definitive, correct way to live this life."
Despite the creative drive and singular determination behind the
album, it's also one that has welcomed some outside input. "I'm very
excited to have some guests on the album as I admire each of these
musicians so much," says Kinghorn-Mills, referring to the input of
Tim Smith (Midlake, Harp), Spencer Cullum, Holly Macve, Ryan Pollie
and Oliver Newton, with the album being mixed by Chris Cohen in
Los Angeles. "At some level, it's a bit nerve wracking [bringing in
other people] because this is something that you spend so much
time building up and making sure that all the pieces are correct," he
says. "Bringing people in can be like, 'oh god is this going to work?' I
don't really ever collaborate much but when I do it's because I trust
them."
Whether it was sitting at home and obsessing over every detail
independently or adding some pedal steel all the way from
Nashville, the ethos of the album remained rooted in trust, intuition
and exploration - a sense of letting go and seeing where the project
takes you. "I just decided I needed to be more open-minded, which was
exciting,» he says. "All the little parts of my imagination which had
been activated in the past slowly came through. I guess that's again
about freedom and your own adventure. Like, just let it happen.
Whereas in the past I've been a bit more self-aware. I've definitely
let my guard down on this record and not be afraid of the path
ahead."
