Today, Hovvdy – the unstoppable Will Taylor and Charlie Martin – share a music video for the new single that arrived last night, “Everything,” directed by Boone Patrello. The track, co-produced by the band and Andrew Sarlo (Big Thief, Bon Iver, Dijon), was written during the sessions for their 2021 breakthrough album True Love. “‘Everything’ is a song about having fun even when you miss the mark,” says Will Taylor, who wrote this one.
The brighter, more uptempo spark of “Everything” kept the song from fitting alongside its more subdued counterparts on True Love. Instead, with a skittering banjo over a propulsive drum machine loop and layered vocals, it sounds more like a spiritual successor to the pre-True Love singles “Runner” & “I’m Sorry.”
The band is currently making their debut appearance in London, playing a pair of sold out shows. The first took place last night at Rough Trade West, the second is set for tonight at a capacity Omeara. Next month the band embarks on a full US tour with support from Molly Parden and Mini Trees. Tickets are on sale now over on their website.
