HÆLOS Share New Song “End of World Party”

London-based band HÆLOS are releasing a new album, Any Random Kindness, on May 10 via Infectious. Now they have shared another song from it, "End of World Party," which a press release says "is a satirical look at disregarding the apocalyptic aspects of humanity and focusing on the now." Listen below, followed by the band's upcoming tour dates.

The band's Arthur Delaney had this to say about the song in a press release: "'End of World Party' went through a few different versions, and then we took things from other songs and these new melodies materialized that we ran with. There's a lot of fun production in it."
 
The band's Lotti Benardout had this to add: "It's a bit more tongue-in-cheek than some of the other tracks on the record. We're all humans in the end-you often need to turn yourself off from the news and enjoy the moment."

Any Random Kindness is the band's second album, the follow-up to 2016's debut full-length, Full Circle, which was released via Matador. The album includes "Buried in the Sand," a new song the band shared back in October via a video (it was one of our Songs of the Week), and "Kyoto," a new song shared in January via a video for it (it was also one of our Songs of the Week). Then they shared another new song from the album, "Boy / Girl."

HÆLOS were originally a trio (Arthur Delaney, Dom Goldsmith, and Lotti Benardout), but have now added touring member Daniel Vildósola. On their debut the band pulled from '90s trip-hop sounds originated by Massive Attack and Portishead for inspiration.

Orlando Leopard produced the album, which was recorded at Baltic Studios in East London and at their home studio. Matt Wiggins (Glass Animals) and Marta Salongi (The xx) mixed the album.

A press release points out: "The latter part of the recording was especially tense, with many near breakups. However, this process led to a new, optimistic perception of each other, and music that explored the push and pull of relationships. A new, increasingly dance-floor oriented direction to their sound emerged."
