This is the eponymous debut album by the phenomenal Vienna duo HVOB -- a lesson in how versatile, intelligent, and creative electronic music can be. Since the first snippets appeared on Soundcloud, the young electronic duo HVOB (short for "Her Voice Over Boys") have been causing a real stir throughout Europe. HVOB have been a hit with the most influential music blogs and with the public: acclaimed appearances at the likes of Germany's MELT! Festival, landing at #4 in the Beatport deep house charts with their debut EP Dogs, rated at #10 in the "Top Live Acts of the Year" and #11 in the "Best Singles of 2012" in De:bug's readers' poll. At the end of 2012, leading Lebanese fashion designer Elie Saab used HVOB's music for the soundtrack to his collection video. 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 tantalizing snippets: this eagerly-anticipated debut LP contains 12 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: 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.
