The US shimmerwave duo Haulm released the single They Came Along on the 11th.
The listener is doused in the sense of a warm summer-shower as the track threads through the room refracting rainbows of colour in to which the audience is drawn whilst the song affords a depth of texturing which is completely unanticipated.
I often receive notification by readers who let me know they are taken by, and enjoy, the breadth of music featured and it does take me by surprise too as my roots are firmly based in punk rock from 1975 to 1979 so to digress outside that orbit is always something logically I am unable to articulate, however, music is intrinsically about emotional connection and not ‘fact based pragmatism’ – hence I am asking you to spend time with that from which theoretically I should already have run out of town to escape, though haven’t, and neither should you as within the song lays a cohesion of sounds which lay a spiders web of tensile flexibility in which to lay mesmerised.
The synthetic folds of They Come Along slip through their iterations as though a silk fan folding and expanding by which the listener becomes transfixed in the hypnotic weaving translucency of the composition.
