January 13 – 16, 2016
Each new year starts with the first official gathering of the music industry at Eurosonic Nooderslag, Europe’s most significant showcase festival. Festival organizers, music promoters and pop experts from all over Europe come together to get an idea of emerging music trends and the most promising acts of the continent.
With a lot of good talent to go around, it is a great honor to be chosen as the country’s musical representative and a huge opportunity to showcase in front of so many industry professionals. As one of the first Austrian acts to be confirmed for Eurosonic Noorderslag 2016, the duo HVOB is ready to give the Eurosonic audience chills with their beautiful live electronic set.
HVOB Performing at Eurosonic: Date: Thursday, January 14, 2016 Venue: Grand Theatre, Groningen
Founded in 2012, HVOB (short for Her Voice Over Boys) 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.
ABOUT THE ALBUM „TRIALOG“
HVOB’s album „Trialog“ was released in spring this year and continues to attract unwavering international interest. The interdisciplinary art project – prompting an invitation to perform a Boiler Room set in Vienna, touted by American Thump magazine as a contender for an „Album of the Year“ award – is a perennial headliner on influential blogs and media such as XLR8R, Resident Advisor, i-D and ARTE after charting high on Beatport and iTunes. At the same time HVOB’s world-wide tour continues to gather momentum, with concerts in cities from Cape Town and New York to Hong Kong and New Delhi.
