Denver band Hollow Head started with a "Spark of Madness," and now they're shouting "I Can See You."

What's happening: The indie-folk rock band is edging more toward rock on its new album, drawing influence from the likes of the Foo Fighters and Soundgarden, band leaders Jimmy Adame and Elliott Miller tell John.

Of note: The band's name is meant to be self-deprecating, a sign they want to have fun and not take themselves too seriously.

What to watch: The debut single from Hollow Head's upcoming sophomore album, "I Can See You," was released this week ahead of a live show Sunday at Lost Lake in Denver.
