For their darkly shaded and radiant debut album Full Circle, HAELOS have found their blues where others go to find pure, uncut exhilaration: the dance floor.
From humble beginnings, the London-based trio attracted the watchful eye of Coachella organizers, awarding the outfit a slot at the lucrative festival without ever having toured the states – no mean feat for a band yet to release a full-length album.
The trio – Arthur Delaney (vocals), Dom Goldsmith (vocals, production) and Lotti Benardout (vocals) – will be bringing a multitude of ominous and enchanting sounds that blend seamlessly together, having spent a massive year touring their debut album Full Circle all over the US and Europe, playing some of the world’s biggest festival stages such as Leeds, Reading, Coachella and Lollapalooza.
After the release of their first single ‘Dust’ in 2014 on Soundcloud, it skyrocketed the band into internet stardom within hours. Captivating the world with their ethereal vocals, the group followed in 2015 with the singles ‘Pray’ and ‘Earth Not Above’.
Thereafter, the band released a four-track Earth Not Above EP, followed by the release of their debut album Full Circle in early 2016, reconstructing the firmament of dance sounds past and present to construct an exquisitely elegiac mood that retains a sense of presence as it conveys the pain of emotional distance, with the album already reaching #1 on the UK iTunes electronic charts, #5 on the US Billboard electronic charts and #20 on the Heatseekers chart.
The band will be playing their first ever headline shows in Sydney and Melbourne in January 2017, with help from a stellar line-up of support acts; Yeo, Christopher Port, and BUOY (Sydney only)– so make sure you’re there!
