Following four studio albums and one live album, HVOB are about to release their sixth album, TOO— an angry, tender, vulnerable, determined account of a generation’s search for life. The album explores extremes in concept, content and sound and will unfold over the course of six months. The eight tracks from TOO will be released individually and sporadically, this way the album grows into an eventual whole. HVOB shared the first track from the album “Bruise” last month and now, they return with their second release, titled “Capture Casa” via Different Recordings / [PIAS].

am i too cold/ am i too old / am i not good for you
am i too quiet / am i too tired / am i too much for you
from “Capture Casa”, TOO, HVOB

“Capture Casa” marks a return to the Austrian duo’s signature melodic techno. The track juxtaposes Anna Muller’s delicate vocal against building atmospheric soundscapes.

TOO is dedicated to the state of mind of a generation in search of inner and outer belonging. The album captures a life in the dichotomy of one’s own and other people’s expectations, in the feeling of not living up to these expectations, in renewed attempts to free oneself from these expectations. TOO is both HVOB’s harshest and softest album to date. In terms of sound, Anna Müller and Paul Wallner explore a space of extremes between departure and retreat, between determination and self-doubt. Today we see the release of the first track “Brusie,” and the eighth and final track from TOO will be released to coincide with the start of the world tour in April 2022.
