Hovvdy – “Ruin (my ride)” Video

It hasn’t been too long since Hovvdy released their last album — Cranberry came out at the beginning of last year — but the Austin duo is already back with another, Heavy Lifter, which they announced last month with “Cathedral.”

Today, they’re putting out its second single, “Ruin (my ride),” a twitchy country song that Hovvdy says “explores the often complicated nature of social and professional rejection, and aims to celebrate the power in genuine connection.” The band chants “I don’t wanna see you give up” on it, backed by a minimal beat and warbled acoustics. The song’s video takes place at a very fun looking backyard dance party, emphasizing the song’s desire for community.
