HÆLOS are Arthur Delaney (vocals), Dom Goldsmith (vocals, production) and Lotti Benardout (vocals); the trio brings a multitude of ominous and enchanting sounds that blend seamlessly together. After a massive year touring their debut album Full Circle all over the US and Europe, they played some of the world’s biggest festival stages (Leeds, Reading, Coachella and Lollapalooza), and went on to perform a staggering 11 shows at SXSW, including an amazing performance at our Secret Sounds showcase party!
With support from some of Australia’s most exciting electro-innovators, HÆLOS debut Australian shows are certainly an early contender for the party of 2017.
Yeo, Melbourne based producer, combines his skills as keyboardist, bass player, vocalist and drum programmer to create guaranteed dance floor bangers. From festivals, supporting Sam Smith, collaborating with Hermitude, and dropping Triple J favourites ‘Icarus’ and ‘Quiet Achiever’, 2015 created a long list of stellar achievements. This year’s release of nine-track album Ganbaru is a true testament to his forever-changing style and sound.
Christopher Port is Melbourne based solo producer and long time touring member of thePieater family – playing drums for Airling and #1 Dads, and live samples with Big Scary. Quietly fine-tuning his own music in between tours, Port finally introduced us to his solo work this year. His debut EP Vetement is an exciting and unique take on the UK garage scene.
Sydney based artist BUOY will be gracing the stage in her hometown, after spending the last year steadily building her reputation as one of Australia’s most unique and interesting electronic acts. Set to a backdrop of intricately textured synths & sampling, BUOY’s music uses vastness and space to highlight her striking vocals. The release of ‘Clouds & Rain’ & her Break EP earned her national radio support, rave reviews internationally, and a spot at this year’s Splendour in the Grass.
