HOY formed in late 2010 as a collaborative contemporary folk trio, combining the song-writing of Melbourne musicians, Felicity Cripps, Cecilia Dowling and Liam Linley.
AQUASLUM is the band's debut album, to be released on May 2nd, 2014 through MGM.
After three years of writing, performing and touring, HOY's founding members expanded the trio to a six-piece band for the Aquaslum recording. HOY now includes members from Gotye, the Black Arm Band and The Basics.
Aquaslum was written in a grand old country house in regional France, where the band used their time to develop harmonies, practice rhythms, rearrange and write songs, and bake a lot of apple crumple with fruit from the orchard. The album was later recorded in a converted church in the Victorian Goldfields by producer Pip Norman (TZU, Sparkadia, Gossling) and mixed in London by Dan Rejmer (Bjork, Foals, Paul Kelly). The album features electric rock-outs, psychedelic interludes, classically inspired instrumentals and analogue samples, lending a sense of timelessness to HOY's sound. Aquaslum's nine tracks draw on rock, pop, folk and classical influences.
Last year HOY joined The Basics on their east-coast tour, playing sold out shows in every major city, followed by their own headline tour for Brigitte Bardot - an EP featuring two singles from the Aquaslum record.
"I've already developed some particularly strong feelings for this tune. It's put together with taut precision with each throb of the bass and clipped harmony paying appropriate tribute to pop/psych bands of the past. Watch, or rather listen to, these guys closely" Dave Ruby Howe, triple j, on ‘Brigitte Bardot’
