This is “They Came Along” by Haulm, the latest member of the Grand Jury family. Their debut single is a minimalist, downcast delight, and only the first in a series of songs we’ll be releasing over the coming months. Earlier this week The405 had this to say:
The duo’s debut single, ‘They Came Along,’ is one of the year’s most thrilling tracks to date, all done without overloading the listener with sounds or gimmicks. Make no mistake, there is plenty of ambient noise – dogs, bird chirps, etc. There are also an array of warm, analogue textures and synths by Kackley filling in a rich sonic foundation for Norton’s somber, ethereal vocals.
And yet, it is only during a brief stretch near the end of the almost-six minute long track that the track’s various components really stack on top of one another. Instead, listeners are treated to a slow-burn of a dance track, packed with moody mediations on isolation and life. The end result is an utterly compelling listen, the sort of debut any group would dream of making. They say you only have one first impression and Haulm has not wasted theirs.
