London-based electronic quartet HÆLOS share a video for “End of World Party,” a single from Any Random Kindness, their sophomore album released earlier this year via Infectious. The video, shot in London and on the English coastline, was directed by Cassidy Burcher, who captures two colliding fronts – a hero caught between two realities at a crossroads. Throughout, scenes of a woman wandering on the shoreline are juxtaposed by vibrant club sequences until they ultimately blend together.
“With ‘End of World Party’ we wanted to explore what it might be like to dance simultaneously in current and future time frames,” says HÆLOS. “We explored the themes during hours of conversations that covered the death of ecosystems, virtual reality and time loops. We focused on wanting to display how our landscapes stand on the point of unprecedented change but also the universal sense of catharsis that can emerge through movement to music.”
Any Random Kindness debuted at #1 (UK) and #2 (US) iTunes Electronic charts. It was #1 on KUTX for week of release and featured on Apple Music’s “Best of the Week” playlist. HÆLOS continue to receive strong support from KEXP, who called their album “a sonically impressive achievement.” Watch their recent session for the station HERE.
After selling out a recent performance at London’s best new venue, EartH, HÆLOS announce appearances at select European festivals including Glastonbury, Latitude, and Field Day. Later this year, they will embark on an extensive UK and European tour. All dates are below.
