BIOGRAPHY

Founded in 2012, HVOB belong to one of the most exciting Austrian pop discoveries of the past few years. Initially only known to a small circle of music connoisseurs, HVOB’s music career soon took off in breathtaking speed. The songs of Anna Müller and Paul Wallner are carried by rather restrained and minimalistic tunes, stylistically settled somewhere between house, electronica and pop, and accompanied by gentle and alluring vocals that are a guarantee for some goose-bump moments. Despite the catchiness, the overall sound is surprisingly complex and varied, and unfolds into a pleasantly warm and melancholic atmosphere with a timeless feel.

Anna Müller composes, produces and also provides the captivating, hypnotic vocals. Final production of the tracks is done in collaboration with Paul Wallner in his Vienna studio. Together they are responsible for creating the unique sound of HVOB.

The success of their album “Silk” was followed by sell-out tours of America, Australia, Africa, Asia and Europe, gigs at Burning Man and Fuji Rock Japan, as well as headline appearances at Sonar in Barcelona, Clockenflap in Hong Kong and the Fusion Festival. The interdisciplinary art project – prompting an invitation to perform a Boiler Room set, touted by American Thump magazine as a contender for an “Album of the Year” – is a perennial headliner on influential blogs and media such as XLR8R, Resident Advisor, i-D and ARTE.
