Interview: Listening to music with HVOB

Interview: Listening to music with HVOB

To me, Her Voice over Boys (HVOB) was one of my favourite music discoveries in 2012. The first time I saw them performing live was at last year’s MELT Festival. There the atmosphere was a little bit strange at the beginning: At that time, HVOB were completely unknown, and they played right after Berghain’s Boris, whose sound could not be more different to what they do. But within minutes HVOB managed to enchant their audience, and in the end everybody was enthusiastic. Since then, things changed quickly for the Vienna-based band. They played many more shows and produced their debut album, which has finally been published on Stil vor Talent on March 8. In our interview we have talked to lead singer Anna about music by Apparat, The Stokes, Sigur Ros and Günther Lause. More after the jump.

At this year’s MELT festival I made a wonderful discovery. Saturday night at the Sleepless Floor, there was an act that almost nobody in the audience had ever heard of before. At first, people were a little skeptical about the newcomer on the stage: What is an actual live band that nobody knows doing here at prime time? But then the performance became one of those magical experiences at festivals when just everything falls into place. In the end, the whole audience was enchanted. Everyone knew they had experienced something extraordinary. And everyone kept asking: “What is the name of the band? What are they called again? Do you have the line-up to look it up?”

The name of the band is Her Voice Over Boys, they are the latest signing on Oliver Koletzki’s label Stil vor Talent. The music of Her Voice Over Boys is deeply romantic, it consists of dreamy melodies, heartfelt vocals, accessible bass lines and club-ready beats. This Sunday they are playing their Berlin debut at Kater Holzig. Their performance starts at 1 am.
