I’m not even sure if I could call this music. It’s definitely not popular music, maybe like sound art, definitely sound effects-y. HTRK (pronounced hate-rock) are a mysterious trio from Melbourne who recently relocated to Berlin, for what I assume is an artistic led decision in order to develop their curious musical leanings. The band was formed as a middle finger gesture to the retro rock revival that dominated their hometown scene of Melbourne (think Jet). Good friends of other rock haters My Disco, their shows are also played in excessively loud volume. So the song below, or maybe I should say the next piece, should be played the same way. Crank it up.
