New taster of forthcoming second album, Love To Give

South London songsmith Sam Howard, aka Halls, is releasing his second album, Love To Give, via No Pain In Pop on February 10. His follow-up to 2012's Ark has him aiming to “embrace the sound of human beings”, which, if 'Waves' is anything to go by, is organ-hooked misery, leavened delicately with optimism, and rather charming pop it makes for too.
