FestPop Interview with HAELOS at Outside Lands Music Festivals

HÆLOS are a London based 3 piece of Arthur Delaney, Dom Goldsmith and Lotti Benardout. In 2014 the three bandmates decided to collaborate having been working on separate projects. Arthur Delaney and Dom Goldsmith had been working on material under the working title of HÆLOS; Lotti had been writing with Dom who was producing an EP for her at the time. The nocturnal, throbbing “Dust” was the first finished work to come from the trio’s newly formed union; over the course of the following year, the rest of the band’s debut album Full Circle’s shadowy sounds came together.

We’re living in a time where the struggle to make human connections is hampered by our inability to unplug, and so Full Circle is a glorious, gorgeous contradiction of sorts: emotional pop that perfectly captures ageless emotional conundrums, featuring music that could only be made in the present day. “We all have a shared human experience,” opines Delaney. “As much as we try to run away from feelings with all the distractions around us, they always follow us around. They’re a constant thing that unites us all.” And so Full Circle is the sound of three individuals finding common ground, for themselves and for anyone who’s ever believed that it’s impossible to move your body without listening to your own heart.
