It’s been just twelve months since the first snippets appeared on Soundcloud, during which time the young electronic duo HVOB (short for “Her Voice over Boys”) have been causing a real stir throughout Europe.
Vienna-born Anna Müller (composition, production, vocals) and Paul Wallner (composition and final production) are kicking off the second year of their collaborative project with another release, only this time with more than just tantalising snippets: their eagerly anticipated debut LP, ‘HVOB’, released 8th April in the UK, contains twelve tracks that showcase the duo’s distinctive sound – intelligent and sophisticated, emotive and melodic.
The opening track ‘Hold Your Horses’ could be a signature tune for HVOB: organic beats, soft piano sounds and Anna Müller’s stunning voice give way to compelling deep house. Further highlights of the album include the single ‘Jack’ with its emotive beats, the complex electronic ballad ‘Fog Machine’, and ‘Always Like This’, HVOB’s interpretation of the track by British indie rock band Bombay Bicycle Club.
