EDITORS’ NOTES

Hælos are unafraid of epic gestures: The very first vocal on the London trio's debut LP is a chanted three-part harmony that quickly ramps up to a soaring falsetto. That track, “Pray,” sports equally uplifting progressive house breakbeats, while “Earth Not Above” darkly glistens and surges to a trip-hop shuffle and "Separate Lives" throbs atop rainy-day drum 'n' bass skitter. The sonic drama is met by lyrics that splice the xx's romanticism with gospel's uplift, but this record owes its oomph to the power of '90s electronic music reimagined. Full Circle indeed.

Remarkable!

Should have just gone ahead and purchased entire album. This is the first album I've come across after hours and hours of listening that just had a melodic flow and character. Very emotional. I'm loving it!!

Life’s Soundtrack

If the universe had its own soundtrack, this would probably be the closest album to represent its wondrous, and deepest sounds. Each track is pieced together with such precision, that it feels like the almighty being himself orchestrated this masterpiece. Each track offers something special and unique, and is both dark and light at the same time. The trio of singers (a female and two male voices), all sync up perfectly in each track, sometimes taking a lead, but mostly singing in harmony, beautifully, and perfectly on point. Well done humans.
