Big In '16 :: HÆLOS
Words: Linn Branson
Definitely a band on the up, after forming last year in London, the electronic three - Arthur Delaney, Lotti Benardout, and Dom Goldsmith - put out their first video for debut 'Dust' in late 2014 fairly quietly. It wasn't long, however, before they started to be talked about through their combination of dual male/female vocals and atmospheric soundscapes.
[We register a particular interest here as Arthur was previously with the band Born Blonde - which also went on to spawn Jungle via two members - and it's always a buzz to see artists we have recognized go on to achieve further acclaim with their subsequent endeavors.]
Earlier this month they unveiled the video to new single ‘Pray', the third in their line of expansive tracks after ‘Earth Not Above’ and ‘Dust’. A white label 12” of ‘Pray’ (b/w ‘Dust’) was released on December 4.
Having picked up interest in the US, they head over there in January after playing London's Lexington on January 11 2016; returning in March to play SXSW and two New York dates.
