HÆLOS - Full Circle Review

For me, this has to be one of the most underrated debut albums of the year so far. It's one thing to do what everyone else is doing. It's another thing to do something a little different. However, it takes things to a completely different level when you're able to produce a sound that's hard to even describe with words

HÆLOS  - Full Circle Review

This album is able to take me somewhere else mentally, and not many artists have that effect on me. Full Circle is a catalogue of unique, beautifully produced tracks that you really need to know about. Let's get into a little more detail..

The album consists of 11 tracks, each of which have an entirely different feel to it. The entire catalogue possesses a dark and ambient sound, however no track sounds similar. Whilst the album would fall under the 'Trip Hop' category, their sound has made it difficult to compare them to anybody else in that genre. Trip Hop has had it's fair share of legends, such as Massive Attack and Portishead. The genre has lacked new talent for quite some time, and HÆLOS seem to be the ones to fill that void.

The second track on the album 'Pray' is truly beautiful. The vocals stood out to me immediately. The vocals consisted of many layers in addition to a great amount of versatility. However, what truly sets this track apart from the others, is the nostalgic sound it consists of.

I was expecting big things due to the quality of a track so early on. And I was not disappointed at all. The LP included other great tracks such as 'Earth Not Above' and 'Dust' both of these tracks were extremely powerful.

Overall, for a debut album, this was extremely impressive. There is still much growing to do for the trio, but they've certainly made a brilliant start. You should definitely listen to the album yourself! You will understand what I'm talking about immediately. HÆLOS aren't very well known as of yet, but I can see that changing very soon indeed. If they continue to produce quality tracks as they have done with this album, they will rise to fame very quickly. You can help this happen even quicker! Give them a follow on social media, and listen to some of their tracks - which I'll leave below!

    I can't say I'm the biggest fan of trip hop actually. But I know for certain that trip hop artists, for some reason, know how to produce constantly stellar music videos!
