Vienna duo HVOB is a lesson in how versatile, intelligent and creative electronic music can be.
It's been just twelve months since the first snippets appeared on Soundcloud, during which time the young
electronic duo HVOB (short for Her Voice over Boys) have been causing a real stir throughout Europe: " this is
what deep house sound should sound like. Pure love " (hmwl.org, Sweden), " sure to be spoken about "
(delicieuse-musique.com, France), "More please, and soon!" (thegap.at, Austria), " sleek and beautifully crafted
beats " (electronicbeats.net, Germany).
HVOB have been a hit with the most influential music blogs and with the public: acclaimed appearances at the
likes of Germanys MELT! Festival, number 4 in the Beatport Deep House charts with their debut EP "Dogs",
number 10 in the Top Live Acts of the Year and number 11 in the Best Singles of 2012 in DE:BUGs readers' poll.
At the end of 2012, leading Lebanese fashion designer Elie Saab used HVOB's music for the soundtrack of his
Vienna-born Anna Müller (composition, production, vocals) and Paul Wallner (composition and final production)
are kicking off the second year of their collaborative project with another release, only this time with more than
just tantalising snippets: their eagerly anticipated debut LP, "HVOB", released March 8, contains twelve tracks
that showcase the duo's distinctive sound intelligent and sophisticated, emotive and melodic.
The opening track "Hold Your Horses" could be a signature tune for HVOB: organic beats, soft piano sounds
and Anna Müller's stunning voice give way to compelling deep house. Further highlights of the album: scheduled
for release in February, the single "Jack" with its emotive beats, the complex electronic ballad "Fog Machine",
and "Always Like This", HVOB's interpretation of the track by British indie rock band Bombay Bicycle Club.
HVOB, who on stage perform live and with a drummer, are planning a European tour after the album's release.
Venues will include: Paris (as part of Paris Fashion Week), Berlin, Zurich; further information: www.hvob-
