LISTEN TO “LATE“
Austin, TX’s Hovvdy have shared “Late,” the latest from their upcoming album, Cranberry. The FADER, who premiered the track today, are calling it “somber and intriguing,” while the band says the song “is about working through patterns of the kind of fear and anxiety that’s in hindsight irrational; the circular way in which we form more thorough and thoughtful understandings of each other.” Cranberry is available for pre-order now and due out 2/9 via Double Double Whammy.
Hovvdy are currently on tour. All dates below.

Based in Austin, Texas, Hovvdy (pronounced “howdy”) is the writing and recording project of Charlie Martin and Will Taylor. The duo, both primarily drummers, first met in the fall of 2014 and quickly bonded over a love for quiet music. Within a few weeks, they had combined songs and began recording their first EP in bedrooms and family homes across Texas.
By 2016 the two had committed to each others growth in songwriting and recording, resulting in their debut album Taster, originally released on Sports Day Records and reissued in 2017 by Double Double Whammy. Hovvdy has found a unique identity in rhythmic, down-tempo pop songs that are hopeful, yet melancholy; relatable, yet distinguishable.
Hovvdy’s sophomore album, Cranberry, expands on a familiar texture, building off Taster‘s minimal complexity and covering new ground. Cranberry will be released on Double Double Whammy on February 9th.
