Ghostly International tweeted this track to my attention this morning but I didn’t have time to check it out before work. I ended up leaving it up on my computer and when I got home it served as a friendly reminder to take a listen. I am glad I did because this song is really good.
HTRK hails from Australia and I remember them being on a Bumbershoot bill a while back. Now I am really kicking myself for not catching that set. Their label (Ghostly International) describes their music as:
“HTRK sound like a comedown, a bad trip, a hip romance, “a motel room, a tyre print in the rain, an alibi” (plan B). 808 beats, evocative basslines, texture on texture. Jonnine’s wry, androgynous slur melts on top – sliding the masculine into the feminine. People say it sounds like Suicide and Swans, but more beautiful.”
