London trio HÆLOS today announce the release of their Earth Not Above EP on limited edition 12” vinyl – due out on Matador on August 14th.
The Earth Not Above EP, which was released digitally earlier this summer, includes 4 tracks – “Earth Not Above” “Cloud Nine”, “Breathe” and “Ethyr” and its physical release marks the first of its kind for the band. Each one of the 4 tracks seems to map the long journey from desperation to relief, stress to sanctuary –whilst calling to mind the same deserted dawn high streets stalked by the music of Massive Attack, Portishead and other electronic artists who spent the 90’s finding the pain after the rave. Each HÆLOS track sounds like a ritual; a way to cope. In a world that has forgotten about the chillout room, those rituals and coping strategies are more vital than ever.
Having spent the summer so far playing key festivals slots across Europe including recent shows at Field Day, Latitude, Heartbeats, France and The Secret Garden Party, HÆLOS now look forward to supporting TV On The Radio at London’s prestigious Roundhouse on August 30th & 31st before performing at Pitchfork Festival in Paris in October.
