New Music-Hovvdy Junior Day League

Hovvdy’s latest album release, True Love, delivers good vibes and positivity. The album has their signature note of nostalgia and comes across truly heartfelt. I love it because it seems personal and invokes a sunny, breezy afternoon texture. A favorite song of mine is “Junior Day League.” Give it a listen.

Hovvdy-Junior Day League

“Low country, high speed
Flag on a mailer, cross on a trailer
Junior day league
Billboard reads, “Have a dream”
Still driving upstate

Cracked like a window, told you how I feel
Sharpen my teeth
Lights on a string, you and meAnd if I wasn’t so uptight
You’d probably be by my side
Don’t think I’ll make it in time
I’m always changing my mindFind myself in a reverie
How you move so patiently
Feel your light fade into me
Turn into a memoryReal again, outlook open
I’m proud of it, the way it’s been
Ego broken or starting to bend

Okay, I meant I’m invested in you
And how we do the things we do
This next line is up to youFind myself in a reverie
How you move so patiently
Feel your light fade into me
Turn into a memory
Find myself in a reverie
How you move so patiently
Feel your light fade into me
Turn into a memory”

I have been following Hovvdy since 2016, when they were just beginning to find listeners on the indie scene. I posted “Meg” one of their first releases. To learn a little more about the duo, here’s my 2016 blog post.

Since then, both have married, released multiple albums, and now have sold out shows. They have a show at Atlanta’s Center Stage on October 12th.

Will you be there?

Here are a few of their upcoming shows via Songkick, but also check out their website, Hovvdy
