Bio

"This is future dance music for the broken hearted and the outsiders." - Heavy & Weird Blog.

With flowing drums, expressive guitars that solo in strange ways, memorable melodies and intense, emotive vocals, you can expect the unexpected when you visit The Halls.

Once described as 'shiver pop', The Halls' recordings are solid, considered pieces – yet difficult to pigeonhole, somehow fresh and nostalgic at once. Live, The Halls are a surprising tour de force, flitting from intricate and delicate to sparse and epic, to grungy and trashy. After a year squirreled away writing and recording demos, this year will see several new singles and a debut EP release.

The Halls released their single 'Lemonade' June 6th, and celebrated with a launch gig at Brisbane's New Globe Theatre featuring pals Golden Age of Ballooning & Sydney's Bad Pony.

The Halls' next single 'City Lights' has just dropped. Their launch party will be August 12 at The Zoo, feat. local faves beneb & Shady Bliss. Later in the year will see two more singles, an EP, a set at Jungle Love Festival and a tour.

I've come back to this tune a couple of times and with each listen it grows on me further. Bec's voice has just the right amount of husk and the vibe harks back to a time that neither of us can likely remember.
