HAVVK create poignant sonic soundscapes with Operate!

November 10, 2019

HAVVK shares new single Operate!

Formidable Irish outfit HAVVK continue to create poignant sonic soundscapes with Operate, out now via Veta Records.

Combining elements of shoegaze, indie-rock and grunge, HAVVK are able to make their own haunting euphoria that is undeniably compelling. Julie Hawk’s distinctively impassioned vocals are at the forefront, feeling instantly reminiscent to the likes of The Cranberries’ Dolores O’Riordan or The Cocteau Twins’ Elizabeth Fraser.

Of the track, Julie explains, “Operate is about someone who is living moment-to-moment without really checking in with themselves. It’s about somebody caught up in productivity, pressures and commitments but has lost sight of why. I have definitely spun into this way of living before, and at times it’s effected my health, my relationships and my perspective on where I should be putting my energy. There’s been a massive culture-shift towards measuring our happiness by productivity. Our digital lives mean that there’s always something we can be achieving and we have fewer obvious moments to switch off and connect with ourselves or the humans around us.”

Another beautifully bold orchestration from this captivating artist.

HAVVK’s debut album Cause & Effect is due for release on 22nd November 2019.
