This new video by HAV has just been put out ahead of their forthcoming first studio album “Inver’ which is released on May 2nd 2017 on Fokwit Records. Whilst you wait for the album to drop this video gives you a little taste of some of this new material – a nice mix of folk tunes mixed with ‘found-sound’ and electonica – very atmospheric!
I’m looking forward to firing up all my basses (upright, electric, ukelele) for the album launch at the end of May!
Sharks Took the Rest are no more. Long live Joy Atlas! The phoenix rises from the flames.
The first single from Joy Atlas is here and it’s getting some lovely reviews. I especially like this one – ok I admit it it’s because they actually bother to comment about the bass – a rarity in my experience!
“With plenty of space left for your imagination to fill in the gaps, these semi-futuristic sounds are aided by some delectable rhythms in their attempts to be a memorable speck in the ever-growing world of pop. This one is much more memorable than most though as a heavenly voice is backed by such sweet bass playing that I feel I may never bother picking up my four-stringed love again. As if this wasn’t enough, the synth interjections are judged so brilliantly that each time they come in your smile will increase by a few degrees. That’s maths that.
You don’t often get such forward-facing pop music as this, cherish it while you can.”
The new 7″‘Kettle Full of Silver” (plus digital download) is now avaliable from Hot Drop Records. Very pleased to be on these records and I’m looking forward to heading out on the road with these lovely chaps later in the year.
