Here’s an LP from Halo Halo on that bastion of indie rock that doesn’t suck, Upset The Rhythm. This band have got Rachel from Trash Kit in and they play a primitive and melodic version of indie pop with skeletal, repetitive structures and clear, bold boy/girl vocal interplay. Apparently the music is inspired by Rachel’s Filipino ancestry and the music and language of the Phillipines, about which I must admit to being woefully uneducated. The spidery repeated melodies and sparse arrangements lend the music an Eastern and sometimes Afrobeat-ish feel but mixed with clattering indie rock arrangements and Can-ish fervour it becomes something else entirely, often verging on a kind of Angels of Light-ish pop ritualism.
‘Want 2 B’ is a highlight, sounding like Tuneyards but stripped of the hyperactive nonsense which can clutter her tracks, instead opting for a squelchy take on Tom Tom Club-meets-Bow Wow Wow post-punk - clever and simple. Another one I’m liking is ‘Sunshine Kim’, which has a celebratory Afrobeat feel mixed with a punky naivete that’s very affecting. It does get a little bit samey by the end but their concept and aesthetic is nonetheless an appealing one, it could just do with a few more memorable tunes. Solid stuff nonetheless.
