A few weeks ago, Halves announced their second album Boa Howl with a skittering percussive track called ‘Drumhunter’. The core trio have also worked with singer/songwriter Gemma Hayes on ‘Tanager Peak’, the fourth track on the album. It’s a sweeping graceful song with unfurling string sections, twinkling melodies and Múm-style percussion with dual male/female vocals from Tim Czerniak and Gemma Hayes.
Halves launch Boa Howl on July 13th in the Button Factory as above with Bantum and Overhead The Albatross on support, as well as Cypress Avenue, Cork on July 26th and an in-store in Tower Dublin on July 6th.
Boa Howl is out July 5th 2013 through HATEISTHEENEMY Records on CD, deluxe gatefold vinyl (with mp3 download), and digital.
