Belfast’s Hiva Oa have shared A Great Height, from their new EP mk2 (part 1)
EP mk2 (part 1) will be released on August 5.
New material from Hiva Oa has been a long time coming. Sometimes, it seems, a period of inactivity is better for a band than one of constant creation. With the release of their forthcoming EP mk2 (part 1), core members Stephen Houlihan and Christine Tubridy departed Edinburgh, returning to their native Ireland seeking renewed inspiration. Hiva Oa retain the mystery and ambition of their former incarnations, but inject a heavy thrum to their intricate patchwork style, and turn their attentions to themes of fear, loneliness, abandonment and awakening.
Hiva Oa is Stephen Houlihan & Christine Tubridy with additional studio and live support from Matthew Collings and Daithi McNabb.
