Continuing the story of their 2021 breakthrough album, True Love, Austin duo Hovvdy have announced a new EP called Billboard For My Feelings. Their upcoming EP consists of four songs written during the True Love sessions, most of which are composed of synth- and acoustic guitar-driven pop melodies.
“I allowed myself to focus more on how everything feels, and a little less about telling a complex story,” said Hovvdy member Charlie Martin in a statement. “Both are super valuable — how a melody or texture makes you feel, versus how a super-emotional piece of songwriting impacts you.”
“We got to have more fun; we got to cut back,” added Hovvdy member Will Taylor. “I’m realizing there are many forms Hovvdy can return to, and this EP is a different form.”
Ahead of Billboard For My Feelings, Hovvdy has shared a video for “Hide,” a song that Taylor says is “a lighthearted song about learning when to let your thoughts run wild and when to batten them up.” The song’s video is a kaleidoscopic montage of found footage of blooming flowers, butterfly wings, and ocean creatures.
