Perfectly Broken is the second installation from HÆLOS, adding to their latest body of work being released on their newly founded Æ imprint. An undercurrent of sophisticated yet less ordinary electronica forms the spine driving a melodic tale and stylised rendition of a fated partnership between the self and the state.
A perfectly uncertain reflection on the fragments of closure comforted with the familiar compliment of signature HÆLOS male-female vocal arrangement and the introduction of a third vocal from behind the fourth wall.
Testament to the hard-working, independent ethos of the band, they have self produced an apt visual to match which unfolds and unravels to climax through layers of digital data corruption.

Unknown Melody, the dynamic, sun soaked new single out 26th June on their own Æ imprint, shows the band once again reinvent themselves in a burst of vivid technicolour. This unfolding, contemplative piece of contemporary electronica stares down a chaotic future in anthemic defiance; encouraging the careless joy and freedom that comes with letting go, and in the process offering up a fitting mantra for these uncertain times. One thing is for sure, Unknown Melody will be blasted out across every makeshift dance floor by everyone who considers this band their best kept secret.
The band have embarked on a collaboration with film maker Elliot Gonzo, ’remixing’ his documentary TARU to serve as visuals for Unknown Melody.
