From the more dance-oriented pop of her Spring EP as King Felix, to the darker, dizzierHour Logic release on Hippos In Tanks, Laurel Halo has staked her claim as one of the more intriguing figures in ambient-leaning art-pop. Alongside fellow synth-obsessives Motion Sickness of Time Travel and especially Julia Holter, Halo’s part of a breed of classically trained talents taking the blurry heat-haze of Hypnagogic pop into the more elegant, ethereal domains of former stalwarts like Kate Bush and Laurie Anderson. OnQuarantine, her debut LP for Steve Goodman’s hardcore continuum institution, Hyperdub—one perhaps not all that surprising given some of his recent A&R work like the signing of Hype Williams’ Dean Blunt & Inga Copeland—Halo’s forged what is often not only her most immersive and beautiful work to date, but one that’s likely to be her most divisive as well.
