Haulm return with new single “Blind”

Today minimalist electronic duo Haulm return with “Blind,” a downcast dance track inspired by a year being locked inside. Think Hot Chip but filled with a pit of sadness. “This song is the product of pandemic frustration while simultaneously trying to not be about that frustration,” says vocalist/producer JT Norton. “It’s just about people not listening to one another, and that can sound as political as you’d like it to be. But ideally, this song is playing in a Michael Mann film while Tom Cruise is assassinating drug dealers in a strobe filled night club.”

“Blind” follows the quietly vitriolic “Call The Waves,” a softly scathing rebuke of global leadership,  premiered via Billboard earlier this year. While “Waves” gave off a fidgety singer-songwriter energy, producer Reed Kackley (who also works under the name BAILE) brings his hazy house stylings to the proceedings on “Blind.”

Haulm return with new single “Call The Waves”

After a nearly two year hiatus, Haulm are back with their new single “Call The Waves,” premiered earlier today at Billboard. The duo’s new track is a prescient downtempo-pop song written for, and about, our dystopic times. Songwriter JT Norton wrote “Call The Waves” in March in reaction to the early non-action the Trump administration was taking around the pandemic and the news that Trump had a meeting with a possibly Covid-positive Bolsonaro. The beautiful song, and music video, belie the pain and anger at the heart of their new single, watching the callous response by those in power and the complete disregard for human life result in our current national mass tragedy and the powerlessness we have all felt as it unfolds. Norton explains the impetus behind the song saying;

“Call The Waves” was written the night of March 12, after the news that President Trump met with a potentially Covid Positive President Bolsonaro. The idea that these two world leaders, who both downplayed the virus to the detriment of their people could potentially become victims of it smacked of a kind of poetic justice. But what the song is really trying to channel is the sadness of the impending loss of life and the utter powerlessness we feel as citizens of a collapsing democracy.”

Haulm release Posture EP, “Rushing” music video

Today marks the release of Haulm’s latest EP, Posture. Following on the heels of last year’s Stay For Me, the collection of songs features Haulm’s distinct brand of icy, downtempo electronic. Pre-dated by singles “Fraction” and “Loss,” the 5-song release is rounded out by downtempo opener “Fate,” the witchy ambience of “Clouds,” and “Rushing,” a slow-burner that has a similarly-minded music video, available above. Stream it wherever you stream.

Haulm return with new single “Fraction”

Today Haulm return with their new single “Fraction.” Fragile and disjointed, with frontman JT Norton’s falsetto tip toeing above Reed Kackley’s frosty house production, the song is vintage Haulm. Like the previously released “Loss,” the new song is taken from the Posture EP, which will be available everywhere on February 22nd. In the meantime, give it a listen at all streaming services today.

Haulm share new single “Loss”

Haulm are back with a brand new single, “Loss.” Premiered yesterday over on Indiecurrent, the track builds on the sonics of last year’s Stay For Me EP, injecting a slick propulsion to the otherwise hazy and smoke-filled proceedings. The single is the first from an EP the band will release next year. More details there soon.

In the meantime, they’re following up the sold out run alongside HONNE with dates in support of Zimmer. Tickets in the tour section.

Haulm’s debut EP “Stay For Me” out today

Stay For Me, the debut from Haulm, is out now!

Yesterday, KCRW premiered “Clean,” one of the icier moments on the EP.  Much like previous singles, the song’s charm resides in the interplay between producer Reed Kackley’s dusky production and singer JT Norton’s crisp falsetto.

”Haulm are a duo based in Brooklyn who specialize in moody, downtempo electronic song craft,” KCRW says. “The haunting atmosphere they’ve created within the song “Clean,” is what initially drew me in, but what keeps me coming back is the evocative refrain “overage and underpaid, all I do is clean.” It’s a great line set to a deeply hummable melody, which gives me the strong feeling that they will not remain underpaid for long.”

Stay tuned for more from the duo soon.
