Laurel Halo always seems to be on the move, but never seems to be hasty. The highly original Halo sound is bubbling, adventurous and experimental but at the same time firmly rooted in the traditions she’s probing. Like a sublime book of poetry with an impeccable list of references. Heavy, mutilated strains of electronic music with influence from the sounds of Detroit, UK and Germany – Laurel Halo’s music is shapeshifting, moody and ecstatic, with rhythmic flashes mediated by modal simplicity. The Michigan-born and Berlin-based artist has previously released records on the classic London-based labels Hyperdub and Honest Jon’s, and we happen to know she’ll be releasing new material in the coming months.
