Graceful And Beatific – Listen To ‘OPERATE’ By Irish Trio HAVVK Ft. Participant

Reveries for the laziest day of the week

21 June 2020

Last year Irish/British indie pop/rock and politically outspoken trio HAVVK
impressed with their highly striking album Cause & Effect.

The band decided to start up collaborations with other Irish artists to interpret songs
of Cause & Effect. The first reworked piece is Operate featuring Participant. It’s an aural pleasure to hear how a frisky synth pop jingle becomes a graceful and beatific ballad. Dreamy, ruminative and starry-eyed. Lovely!

Impassioned London Trio HAVVK Shares Notable Clip For New Stirring Single ’52’…

Clips that will have an impact on your eyes and your ears…

12 October 2019

Band: HAVVK

Who: “Trio originally formed in London in 2014, and relocated to Berlin two summers ago.
The band initially evolved around Julie Hough’s solo project but evolved into a challenging
trio with more atmosphere, punch, and political edge than before.”

Track: 52 – newest single about “our experience of the growing political and social climate, and those who lead it. We hope that we start to celebrate and find the positives in what we share and makes us different rather than using them to drive a wedge between us.”

Score: What an all-powerful quit/Loud/quit outburst this is. Julie Hough‘s stupendous and passionately charged vox transfers this overall exuberant performance to a majestic level that already leaves a most notable mark after just one blood-curdling spin. A fabulous proof of how some artists can translate political commitment into an energized intensity able to affect affects the listener’s attention instantly. The accompanying clip fits perfectly well with the song’s overwhelming sensitivity.

Emotive Trio HAVVK Drops Clip For Newest Eruption ‘SHIFTING SHAPE’…

Clips that will have an impact on your eyes and your ears…

Band: HAVVK

Who: “Trio originally formed in London in 2014, and relocated to Berlin two summers ago.
The band initially evolved around Julie Hough’s solo project but evolved into a challenging
trio with more atmosphere, punch, and political edge than before.”

Track: SHIFTING SHAPE – newest single / new clip

Score: This emotional eruption tackles the societal pressures to adapt how you look to fit into what society expects, especially around traditional assumptions of gender. I guess humankind just does not understand anything that is different to their out of date save-rules-book and are scared of anything that manifests itself outside their damn narrow-minded way of thinking. Bands like these, riveting outpourings like this are totally needed to at least make people think outside their medieval box of human perception.

Catch the impassioned fervor right here…
