Hovvdy, based out of Austin, Texas, put on a phenomenal show in NYC earlier this fall while supporting another of our faves, Dayglow; and you know THP just had to be there and check out this incredible duo!
It was from the origins of their debut album Taster in 2016, that we first found and fell for singer-songwriter duo Charlie Martin and Will Taylor. With their hip fusion of slowcore and rock, with indie influences, Hovvdy broach beyond your average indie-pop group.
With the release of their album Taster, the duo has taken their rock-inspired sound and made a name for themselves with a signature lyrical and melodic flair, welcoming audiences with a lowkey, effortless energy that makes the crowd want to sway along. And that’s exactly what they did in NYC! What a night! We were vibing insanely hard!
We at THP were fortunate enough to catch Hovvdy after the release of Taster so we could happily vibe along to their set down at the Bowery Ballroom. And let us tell you, Honey Poppers, there are so many tracks you need to listen to (and you know, just vibe?!) along with.
And here’s the true insider tip: if you were loving rockstars The Band Camino, who we also caught recently, Hovvdy will become your next must-listen on your playlist.
The release of True Love shows listeners of Hovvdy the evolution of their style. A polished fusion of synth instrumentation with lyrics found in influences of laidback rock, which we promise, hit hard live. True Love is the evolution of past projects from Hovvdy including Cranberry, Heavy Lifter, and Taster. It all made for a night of music that we’re continuously peppering our playlist with at THP HQ. Oh, how we wish you could’ve been there Honey Poppers!
