With their successful debut album (‘HVOB’, 2013) and five EPs, HVOB have crafted a unique panoply of sound: intelligent and driving,
challenging and melodic. ‘Trialog’, the second album by the producer duo Anna Müller and Paul Wallner, will be released on April 17th.
The remarkable story of HVOB began in April 2012. With the idea of making an entirely new kind of electronic music: intelligent, sophisticated,
emotive and melodic.
This idea led to four snippets which were uploaded to Soundcloud – causing an immediate sensation in Europe. Their first EP ("Dogs") was released in
summer 2012. Then came the debut album in spring 2013 ("HVOB"), glowing reviews by critics all over Europe, Top 15 in the US Billboard Charts'
"Next Big Sound" category, several number 1 chart entries on iTunes, number 3 in the Beatport charts.
The two musicians behind HVOB are Anna Müller and Paul Wallner. Anna Müller composes, produces and also provides the captivating, hypnotic vocals.
Final production of the tracks is done in collaboration with Paul Wallner in his Vienna studio. Together they are responsible for creating the unique
sound of HVOB.
US debut at SXSW festival
HVOB are carving their own path not just with their distinctive sound but with their live performances as well. The duo always play live and perform
with a drummer – a concept as innovative as it is successful: HVOB have just been voted number 2 best live act by the most influential electronic
music magazine "De:bug" in Germany – beating off big acts like Darkside (Nicolas Jaar), Mount Kimbie and Disclosure.
The Vienna-based duo have already appeared live in over 20 countries in Europe, Africa, South and North America, including performances at the Elie
Saab Show during Paris Fashion Week, Berlin Fashion Week and the most important European electronic music festivals such as Melt! and Fusion and also
made their US debut at the SXSW festival in Texas last year.

Trialog HVOB present their second album as an interdisciplinary work of art: ten physical processes are reflected in
interactive installations, visuals and sounds. With their successful debut album ('HVOB', 2013) and five EPs, HVOB have crafted a unique
panoply of sound: intelligent and driving, challenging and melodic. 'Trialog', the second album by the producer duo Anna Müller and Paul
Wallner, will be releases on April 17th. I. Project Above all, 'Trialog' is an interdisciplinary art project, comprising a discourse between
the disciplines of sound, video and installation, realised by HVOB, the VJs licherloh and the visual artist Clemens Wolf. The theme centres on ten
ubiquitous physical processes, which are being documented and interpreted interactively on three artistic levels; via Clemens Wolf's orchestrated
processes, the lyrics and sounds of HVOB's tracks, and the visuals by VJs lichterloh. II. Album Tearing, mixing, bursting, melting, oxidising,
breaking, imploding, etching, bending, burning, track to video, video to artwork, artwork to track: 'Trialog' depicts the transformation of
ten physical processes in ten tracks. HVOB's sound distinctively shapes the album, yet the duo now interpret their acoustic palette in darker,
more accentuated, techno-leaning shades. Each of the ten tracks pursues its own individual dramaturgy: the opener 'Azrael' tears apart its
built-up percussive tension, 'Clap Eyes' inches along frailly, 'The Anxiety to please' deepens and condenses until it implodes.
References, inspirations and associations between materials, processes and artistic disciplines an artistic depth, which renders the album a highly
complex and complete work of art.
