Hiva Oa share their new single ‘A Great Height’.
Belfast duo’s EP ‘mk2 (part 1)’ will be released on August 5th.
“The track’s swirling flurry of contorting electronica, weaving bass patterns and braying guitar swells meld to create a wonderfully oppressive three minutes,” says The Thin Air.
A Great Height sets the tone for the rest of the EP, with dizzying electronica, marrying primal and a swelling bass hum, it suffocates the atmosphere with intense measures with experimental controls of sounds.
Hiva Oa is Christine Rubridy and Stephen Houlihan.
