HOVVDY Debut New Album and Video
Hovvdy, have dropped their new EP billboard for my feelings, today on Grand Jury. The band has also shared another Boone Patrello-directed video for “Ruby,” the EP’s opening track that Martin says is “about maintaining strength in being there for the ones you love. Writing it I had this propelling sensation, and I wanted the song to have that push to it. I tried to almost overwhelm Sarlo with melodies, and Ben’s bass line added so much color and movement. We made the entire project remotely, but this EP has a fun cohesiveness I don’t think we’ve ever achieved.”
Made up of four leftover but carried-along songs from the True Love same writing sessions, billboard for my feelings is a gassed-up, mood-driven essence of Hovvdy’s brighter modes. Their last record’s love line continues across bouncing-off-the-walls exuberance and mellow intimacy, executed in waves of synth and acoustic guitar-driven pop melodies. The EP was co-produced by the band and Andrew Sarlo (Big Thief, Bon Iver, Dijon)
Hovvdy is kicking off the west coast leg of their tour next week. Their life affirming live show, that has included sell out shows in New York, Washington DC, Chicago, Austin, London, Nashville and Toronto.
