Haraket
"Ílk"

Peckham 5-piece Haraket return to Melodica Recordings with the eagerly awaited follow up to their debut EP from earlier this year. 4-tracker 'Ílk' flows seamlessly from the early promise of 'Taint/Attgo', preserving the stripped back production of delicate source material, moody electronics, live drums and effected vocal lines from singer Abigail Hardiman.
The band emerged from the creative chaos of school and college bands in and around Peckham that have already given the world King Krule. Back in March, their début record garnered support from the likes of Zane Lowe (BBC Radio 1), Tom Ravenscroft, Gideon Goe (BBC 6 Music) and John Kennedy (XFM).
Following a short intro of field recordings and subtle tonal materials (Ílk), the EP dives into 'Level Head', a track rich with high-drama, contrast, cacophonous builds and harmonious respite. Anyone that has seen the band live recently will be able to vouch for this track's ability to induce an electric atmosphere. It's a phenomenal experience.
This is followed by 'Moment Of Calm', a track of smokey speak-easy atmospherics, splashy drums and slinky vocals. As the track develops the mood switches to something far more cathartic, with bold walls of guitars and pounding bass.
Closing track 'Sea Grid' opens with an ominous ambience before plaintive chords and wood block rhythms begin, rolling in the smog. Eventually this lifts away revealing a beautiful structure of chords, vocals and drums, interplaying harmonies and the pitter-patter of percussion. It’s a lovely close to an impressive follow up.
