Reuben Hollebon's Terminal Nostalgia

Email a Friend
Reuben Hollebon's debut record is called 'Terminal Nostalgia.'

Since medieval times, British folk music has been filled with dark ballads and unsettling tales. The British singer and songwriter Reuben Hollebon isn’t a folk musician, but he’s certainly tapped into that dark brand of storytelling with a song like "Faces," which features the equally uncanny (in the sense of "spooky") video below. Probably says something about us that we can’t stop listening to it, but his tremulous vocal delivery, urgent acoustic guitar, and eerie, often undefinable other sounds makes for compelling music. His debut LP is called Terminal Nostalgia, and Reuben is here to play some of it for us.
