HTRK is a group I only started listening to pretty recently with their Psychic 9-5 Club record. I played the song “Love Is Distraction” on a concept radio show I was doing about someone’s brain in a breakup tailspin. The subtle, eerie synth and percussion along with the cool vocals of Jonnine Standish were perfect for channeling the feeling of numbness, paranoia and futility of situational depression.
But enough about the old, HTRK have a new record Venus In Leo coming via Ghostly on August 30. This song similarly channels the muted, greyscale feelings of longing and casts it in a special light. Subtle instrumentals with some sterile drones accompany Standish’s vocals. Like pretty much every lead-up single I post about on here, I can’t wait for the album.
