Bio

HOY is Felicity Cripps (Vocals, Guitar) Cecilia Dowling (Viola, Vocals) and Liam Linley (Vocals, Guitar). All three write, play and sing on their debut album, Aquaslum, each bringing a unique element to HOY. From backgrounds in classical and pop-electro, 60's rock and French-pop they have drawn on elements of the music they love to form a layered pysch-pop sound filled with poetry, melancholy and harmony. Aquaslum was produced by award-winning producer Pip Norman (TZU, Sparkadia, Ash Grunwald) and mixed by Dan Rejmer (UK) whose credits include Bjork, Foals and Paul Kelly.

Aquaslum will be released May 2nd, 2014.

The mood just engulfs everything for four and a half minutes as HOY spiral up and down hypnotically.

I've already developed some particularly strong feelings for this tune. It's put together with taut precision with each throb of the bass and clipped harmony paying appropriate tribute to pop/psych bands of the past. Watch, or rather listen to, these guys closely.
