HVOB & Winston Marshall – Silk

Thursday 16th, March 2017 / 08:26
By Jamie McNamara

Tragen

HVOB is an Austrian production duo that consists of Anna Müller and Paul Wallner. Together, the duo have released two albums, but for their latest album Silk, they’ve enlisted the help of collaborator Winston Marshall. The resulting album is an emotionally charged take on dance music, often leaving the dancefloor to cry in the bathroom alone.

Leadoff track “The Blame Game” is a soulful post-mortem of a relationship gone sour. It takes a card from The xx with its moody atmosphere and guitar-led dance music. It features a dramatic vocal turn from collaborator Winston Marshall that sets the tone for much of Silk, the first album on HVOB’s own label, Tragen.

“Glimmer” and “Astra” serve as palate cleansers in between the main courses of the album; their ambient yearning is a welcome change of pace from the album’s dour emotional core.

Silk isn’t a perfect album, but its successes outweigh its faults and help to prove that HVOB are a production duo on the rise.
