SONG PICK: HÆLOS – Boy / Girl
Back in 2016 the London-based trio HÆLOS blew us away when we saw them live for the first time at during SXSW and consequently their debut album “Full Circle” was our favorite album that year. Now a four-piece they are about to release their second record “Any Random Kindness” on May 10. The third single “Boy / Girl”, a dark, futuristic track about relationships in the age of technology is a natural fit for the alternating vocals of singers Lotti Benardout and Arthur Delaney. The band gives some background:
“Boy / Girl” was one of the first songs we finished writing for Any Random Kindness. It’s about the breakdown of a relationship in the digital age and a retreat into the comforts of technology. A conversation between a boy and a girl filled with all the feelings of sadness and frustration at their inability to connect.
HÆLOS will be back in Austin for SXSW and tour North America afterwards. Listen to our Song Pick of the Day “Boy /Girl” below:
