Hovvdy – “Cathedral”

Hovvdy released their beautiful sophomore album, Cranberry, last year. This October, the Austin slowcore duo will put out their third, Heavy Lifter.

Charlie Martin and Will Taylor created the forthcoming album in makeshift home studios around Texas. We hear its lead single, “Cathedral,” today. The track sharpens their familiar fuzz, finding a crisp warmth. It recalls (Sandy) Alex G or the homespun lo-fi indie of former Double Double Whammy label mates LVL UP.

Listen to “Cathedral” below via a lyric video that features cows but, sadly, no feral hogs.
