HOWLING – Phases
Howling return with “Phases” (supported via RA), the first new music from their forthcoming full-length.

“We began this track with a few synths and some obscure vinyl samples when we had some time together in California in an old wood and stone house looking down over the sea… everything was recorded there with all the beautiful scratch and hiss of a lounge room with windows open to the world… we shaped it further playing it live, learnt how it needed to flow and gently coerced it when we could in Berlin and Ibiza and anywhere we found ourselves in between… it found its way to its many forms and carries all those places and moments with it now..”
Consisting of Frank Wiedemann of Âme and singer RY X of The Acid, Howling released their debut album “Sacred Ground” in 2014 to widespread acclaim. Described as “Flawlessly stunning production… A tranquil masterclass in downtempo electronics” by Mixmag, the record solidified their previous breakout success with the viral track ‘Howling’, and was complimented with a set of stunning remixes from the likes of Midland,Rødhåd and Radioslave.
Frank and RY X also took their collaboration out on the road, translating the album into a mesmerising live show and playing a string of sold out shows and festivals in the UK and across the world. They return to play live at Village Underground in London on the 15th April.
