HAVVK – Automatic

Calling fans of ’90s grunge – alt.rock ensemble HAVVK evoke happy memories of Nirvana and Hole with their new single, taken from their album Levelling, due September 17.

Props to Adam Cleaver and James Byrne too for the expertly shot cinematic video starring Hannah Collins.

Singer and bassist Julie Hough (top) says:

“Automatic is about cherishing childhood friendships and the way that they evolve. It’s about snapshots that will always be imprinted in our minds – for me it’s hours talking on the landline, swapping clothes, burning CDs, mitching school or going to gigs for the first time.

“It’s about the fuzzy feeling of nostalgia when you slip back into a conversation with an old friend as if you saw each other yesterday. But it’s also about being afraid to lose that feeling; being anxious that those memories might burn away and having to be open to growing together even as your paths change.”

Nick says: Automatic: for the people.
