    This screams of Simon and Garfunkel. Just looked him up, turns out Harper is Paul Simon’s son.

      i thought the exact same thing!!! totally not surprised its his son

  • Eric

    Even more interesting is that this is his first album. He was born in 1972!

    How do you go so long not making an album when your dad is Paul Simon!

      maybe that’s exactly why you wait!

    Agreed…..also. Isn’t that the girl from Donnie Darko all growns up? quite pretty.

    You can find yourself in a sweet gentle dream. Melancholy and nostalgia. There is definitely resemblance to Simon and Garfunkel times. Wonderful figurative language. Beloved ones are forever with you, they characterised your life, so this is never over.

    The video represents more complacent times, people had time to breath.
    Innocence, vulnerability and genuineness are reflected in this song. The close shots are great and the nature scenery is lovely. As Jena Malone- beautiful inside and out.

Music Video: HVOB “The Anxiety to Please”


Part music video, part art installation, the tracks off HVOB’s latest album are something of a dialogue (or rather a “trialogue”) with Austrian artists Clemens Wolf and lichterloh. Each collaboration operates as a self-contained piece (installation, music, and video), highlighting different materials and their mesmerizing transformations. Check out the captivating experimentations for “The Anxiety to Please” off the album Trialog below!
