Texas duo Hovvdy recently shared their new single “Town.” The track, co-produced by the band and Andrew Sarlo (Big Thief, Bon Iver, Dijon), was written following their 2021 album True Love, out now via Grand Jury. Hovvdy is Charlie Martin and Will Taylor. Hovdy hit the road on April 16, 2022 for a tour with Molly Parden and Mini Trees. “Town,” follows Hovdy’a previous single “Everything.”

“Writing and recording ‘Town’ helped me break out of a relatively dark place,” says Charlie Martin. “There was catharsis in almost every layer — I remember crying recording the mellotron flutes. I’m not sure why, but with ‘Town’ I wanted the instrumental to do the heavy lifting, leaning less on storytelling. In that way, the song’s meaning isn’t terribly specific, but for me it’s about missing your friends and hoping they miss you.”
