Hovvdy’s debut LP was nothing’ short of lovely. there are too many reasons to count why y’all should be excited about ‘Cranberry’ It feels like Austin indie duo Hovvdy have been rolling out their sophomore album, Cranberry, for years — actually, lead single “Petal” dropped in late October and now at last the whole, beautiful thing is here for your enjoyment. In addition to “Petal,” we’ve also heard “Late,” “Cranberry,” and “In The Sun,” all of which provided a good sense of the album’s sighing lo-fi slowcore feel. Surveying the album in full is like being suspended in a state of waking up from a dream in a very comfortable bed. I recommend getting under a blanket and enjoying it on this frigid February day — especially if you’re into (Sandy) Alex G, American Pleasure Club, and the like.

Austin band Hovvdy are slated to release their sophomore album, “Cranberry”, on february 9th via Double Double Whammy Records.  the duo’s three preceding singles have all reflected the impending warmth and comfort this album will be capable of providing; its fourth single, “In The Sun,” accomplishes the same feat through slightly different means.

a mix of acoustic and electric guitars bleed together and coalesce around a soft back-beat, a muted palette that swaddles a tender lead vocal occasionally laid bare.  the linchpin of “in the sun” paces timidly in the background, a pastoral synth line with just enough buoyancy to float to the surface when needed before receding back into the greater texture.

like the very best of recipes, “In The Sun” is infinitely greater than the sum of its parts, a beautiful collage of frank, minimal pop.

Hovvdy Cranberry

Hovvdy’s debut LP was nothin’ short of lovely. there are too many reasons to count why y’all should be excited about ‘Cranberry’

The Austin based band released one of 2016’s most enduring – and endearing – albums in “Taster”.  “Cranberry”, is their first since signing to the venerable double double whammy,  label seems poised to flesh out the warm, lived-in aura that permeates their disarmingly honest work.  case in point: lead single “Petal” drips with nostalgia, its assured pace gently giving way to tender falsetto.

Based in Austin, Texas, Hovvdy (pronounced “howdy”) is the writing and recording project of Charlie Martin and Will Taylor. The duo, both primarily drummers, first met in the fall of 2014 and quickly bonded over a love for quiet music. Within a few weeks, they had combined songs and began recording their first EP in bedrooms and family homes across Texas.

By 2016 the two had committed to each others growth in songwriting and recording, resulting in their debut album “Taster”, originally released on Sports Day Records and reissued in 2017 by Double Double Whammy. Hovvdy has found a unique identity in rhythmic, down-tempo pop songs that are hopeful, yet melancholy; relatable, yet distinguishable.

Hovvdy’s sophomore album, “Cranberry”, expands on a familiar texture, building off Taster’s minimal complexity and covering new ground. Hovvdy – “Petal” Off their new album, “Cranberry” Out February 9th, 2018 on Double Double Whammy Records.
