HFHW formed in Davis, California as a noise pop collaboration between Adam Abildgaard and Nick Duffy in 2010 and added Ted Davis in the following years amidst a series of lineup changes. Renouncing the traditional front-manned format of most contemporary bands, the members instead each contribute songs and share the lead.
Continuing their habit of self-reinvention, the band has generated growing excitement with a series of ambitious new singles from their EP, Mood Ring, released on Feb 15 2019 via EMPIRE. The new material teases a dreamier, more psychedelic and indulgent sound, and has landed the group spots on Spotify playlists like POLLEN, Bedroom Pop, Modern Psychedelia, and All New Indie. Their latest single ‘Sky So Blue’, described as “a cloud-wandering, escapist pop epic, that isn’t afraid of sounding like the aural equivalent of sticking your head into a candy floss maker” (God Is In The TV Zine, UK) made its way to the Hot Tracks list on the front page of Apple Music.
