As far as I know, they only have an EP called A Slow Drip, available now on Sporktone Records.
Good Night Gold Dust
Hælos’ first time in Minneapolis... and it was incredibly well-received. Earlier in the day, they stopped by local radio The Current 83.9 with Mac Wilson, which helped boost the band’s popularity with local fans. You can check out their three songs “Separate Live”, “Dust” and “Oracle” at thecurrent.org.
Just to give you a little background on the trio - they are Arthur Delaney (vocals), Dom Goldsmith (vocals, keys) and Lotti Benardout (vocals), but for their tour, they’re joined on stage with an additional drummer, guitarist, and keys. The band also brought along their own sound equipment and sound guy! They really wanted to control their sound, from the looks of it. Fans and critics compared their music to Massive Attack and Portishead, but, personally speaking, hearing them live, I did not really detect that ‘glitchy’/warpy sound that I’ve associated with those bands... Instead, I feel they sound more like London Grammar (but a little darker).
Based on hearing the band talk about their first US tour, I thought I heard Goldsmith announced that Minneapolis was “the coldest place on earth.” You have to laugh; they’ve not seen anything yet. I think by next year, or so, the band will be back headlining a much bigger venue. The 7th Street Entry seemed too small for this band.
Hælos’ Full Circle album is out now on Matador Records.
