  • Occurrence Announces New Album “Slow Violence”, Shares New Song “Heels Over Head”

  • New York City-based electronic pop trio Occurrence, consisting of Ken Urban (electronics, synths & beats), Cat Hollyer (vocals, flute) and Johnny Hager (vocals), announced their fourth studio album “Slow Violence” would be released on April 7, 2023.


    It is their first album in two years since the 2021 album “I Have So Much Love to Give”.
    The album comprises 22-track, produced by Ken Urban.
    From the album, the trio unveiled the first single called “Heels Over Head” along with a music video.
    The track was written by Kenneth Urban, Catherine Hollyer and John Charles Hager. Produced by Ken Urban.
    The accompanying music video was directed by Tato Giligashvili
  • Ken Urban said, “Johnny and I worked on this during lockdown in Summer 2020. Again since Cat couldn’t be with us in person, I sampled her vocals and Johnny’s from older tracks so it could be like she was here in NYC singing with Johnny. After mixing an early version with Daniel, I asked Kip of The Natvral and Pains of Being Pure at Heart to play guitar on it. He sent us this crazy awesome version where he turned it into a Weezer song. Though we didn’t go that route, it cracked open the song for me. We really went in and re-thought it from the ground up, all while keeping most of Kip’s lead guitar parts. It took ages to get the arrangement right, but as usual Kiri killed it.”


  • Johnny Hager said, “I wanted to make this song all joy. Pure happiness and pure bliss. Ken has a great ear for parallel universes living inside one song; the dark co-existing with something lighter, perhaps? This song is about that moment you realize you’re in love. Nothing anyone does or says is going to change your mind. You don’t even question how long that moment will last. You just live in that moment during this song.”
    Cat Hollyer said, “As a band, we’ve spent so so much time on darker themes. It’s where we’ve been most comfortable. Songs like this feel very vulnerable and risky, and I love that we’re moving in this direction. We’ve been together for years now, and it’s quite something to see how each of us has influenced the others in the band. What Johnny’s done here is going to show up in our work more, I can feel it.”
