On the wings of their breakthrough debut, True Loves, the ascension of Hooray For Earth continues with the release of two new singles, out 8/21 on Dovecote Records. As an inextricable duo, “Never” and “Figure” mine True Loves for its most ecstatic moments and elaborate on its most daring and inspired sonic facets. The two singles represent a sort of unwillful evolution, a thoughtful token of the realizations resultant in the period of time immediately following a successful debut. This new song debuted on Pitchfork.
Recorded in between tours at his West Village home, “Never” and “Figure” sound like massive, studio-recorded songs. Heroux endures urban din on a daily basis, “like chainsaws and general industrial clatter”, but unlike your garden-variety field recording obsessive, he culls tone and texture from them while allowing structure to tame and mask them. With Chris Coady’s hands on the mixing board, what results is a savage Colossus of sound.
According to Heroux, “these tracks represent the last of the home-recordings that [he'll] do for Hooray For Earth.” After Never/Figure, Hooray For Earth will, for the first time ever, record a full length from start to finish in the studio. This is slated for later in the year with Chris Coady.
