British trip-hop outfit HÆLOS are pleased to announce a headline Belfast show at Voodoo on Saturday 19th October 2019. On May 10th, their sophomore album, Any Random Kindness. Due out through Infectious, the follow-up to 2016’s Full Circle finds Lotti Benardout, Arthur Delaney, and Dom Goldsmith “experimenting” with new songwriting approaches.
Specifically, Delaney returned to his roots of writing music on the acoustic guitar; Goldsmith, meanwhile, turned to the music of techno legend Ricardo Villalobos for inspiration. The band also expanded by making touring guitarist Daniel Vildósola an official member, incorporating his “classical background and technical prowess.”
The 11-track collection was produced with Orlando Leopard at Baltic Studios in East London, then mixed by Matt Wiggins (Glass Animals) alongside Marta Salongi (Björk). Its themes touch on modern society and its ills, including our current political landscape, climate change, and technology.
To coincide with the LP news, HÆLOS have broken off “Kyoto” as the lead single – Listen BELOW:
