New Sounds - Band: DICEY HOLLOW Track: "Rose of Maine"

Self-Titled Debut EP Out July 24th On Dine Alone Records  

Newcomers, Dicey Hollow is the collective talents of Petter Ericson Stakee (lead singer and guitarist of Alberta Cross) and Jamie Biden. Today they have unveiled their latest offering "Rose of Maine." From the duo's forthcoming, self-titled debut EP that will be released worldwide on July 24th via Dine Alone Records.
Petter Ericson Stakee says, "'Rose of Maine' was one of the last songs we recorded for the EP, but the tune is actually one of our oldest. Some late night jams at Jamie's studio in Midtown [New York City] kind of brought it back to life again. It's definitely one of my favorites on the project now."
Dicey Hollow began as an excuse for old friends to finally get together and create some music - that excuse was a film that needed a score. Although the film never got completed, the two were inspired by the collaboration and kept writing together. Whenever time allowed them both to escape New York City, they would head to Mt. Tremper in Upstate New York to write and demo the songs that would eventually make up the debut EP. The result of their collaboration captures an intimate brand of cinematic rock. The six-song EP also features the mixing masterminds of Nico Aglietti (Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros), Claudius Mittendorfer (Temples, Big Data, Interpol, Johnny Marr) and Kyle Pass.
"...graceful kind of alt-country." -Magnet
"...heavy piano notes and a heap of Americana string work."
- Consequence of Sound
"Stakee's high, emotive voice is similar to Thom Yorke's of Radiohead though the band's overall sound is reminiscent of Iron and Wine- slow, Americana folk music that evokes feelings of a midsummer night's reverie." - In Your Speakers
"... a dreamy, almost floaty spin on folk and country." - Baeble
