Hovvdy (DOUBLE DOUBLE WHAMMY / Sports Day Records)
Coming from Austin Texas, Hovvdy is the writing and recording project of Charlie Martin and Will Taylor. The two of them, both primarily drummers, first met in the fall of 2014, and quickly bonded over ramen and a love for quiet music. Just a few weeks later, they had combined songs, and recorded their first ep in each others bedrooms and family homes across Texas. Encouraged by positive reactions to their songs on bandcamp, the two committed to each others growth in songwriting and recording, resulting in their 2016 debut album “Taster". The duo have found a unique identity in rhythmic, down-tempo pop songs, that are hopeful, yet melancholy; relatable, yet distinguishable.
"New York psych-pop explorers Zula aren't easy to pin down, but while their sound shifts track to track, there is a beautiful coherence to an album like This Hopeful."
