“Halls – the solo project of 23 year old South London musician Sam Howard – released a debut album, ‘Ark’, in November 2012. A long twelve months later – after rapt reviews and a stint modelling for Hedi Slimane in Paris – Howard’s second album is here, and the changes are marked. In his new work, Howard has replaced apprehension and doubt with a muted hope, and just as the sentiment has shifted, as too the compositions and arrangements have moved into the real world. Ark’s electronic templates have ceded to – as Howard says – “embrace the sound of human beings”, and the instrumental palate has widened: brass, tuned percussion, woodwinds, and organs now flesh out the tracks, with digital percussion only used for texture rather than structure.‘Love To Give’ is a weighty, masterly executed album – a step away from anxiety towards light.”
