South Londoner Halls’ debut album, Ark, was a mournful, hushed favorite of mine last year, and today he’s back to announce its followup. Love to Give comes out February 11th via No Pain In Pop. About his own evolution, Halls says: “Ark is the cold album, closed-off and confusing. I obscured lyrics and hid behind reverb and mumbling… Love to Give is about opening up and becoming more of a human being.” Look him in the eye in the slow-motion video for “Forelsket” and see for yourself.
