Haulm’s six track EP Stay For Me has been out for a moment, but that in no way means we should let EP track Clean slip by. The Brooklyn based project, a collaboration between vocalist/composer JT Norton and electronic producer Reed Kackley (BAILE), entice and enchant with their chiffon vocals and an ethereal trickling, misty burbling soundscape on Clean. Their downtempo electronica and wispy light vocals remind me of Daniel Woolhouse’s early music as Deptford Goth, but embedded in a nebulous haunting, atmospheric skimming sonic environment akin to some of John Hopkins or even Bonobo’s more chill and ambient constructions. Haulm’s Stay For Me EP can be streamed in full on Soundcloud, here.

Haulm is a Brooklyn based collaboration between vocalist/composer JT Norton and electronic producer, Reed Kackley (BAILE). They take us on a metaphysical journey with their debut single, They Came Along, a minimalist electronic piece influenced by downtempo and techno with earnest and pensive vocals. They Came Along is a dreamy, fleecy swaddle that evokes a surreal oasis with its chirping birds and verdant lushness. We float into oblivion on its fluid synths and floaty beats, whose Balearic consistency and glimmering beauty are reminiscent of Caribou and Bonobo, melded with the dance groove of RÜFÜS DU SOL’s more ambient offerings. They Came Along is a compelling introduction to this fascinating new two piece project. You can also stream the single via Spotify, here.
