: Hal Flavin

Hal Flavin are an edgy electro-rock band, grit, dirt and all, who hang their stage with a futuristic dangle of cables, effects and finery, as if prepared for some strange ritual of the soul.

The blood flowing through those jacks and data chips seems pumped from the Indie and Electro-roots of their teens, with live energy to match. And if references are not music to your ears - once you get hooked on one of their pop-driven melodies, you'll be all fired up... with no questions asked.

Hal Flavin was founded in 2007 by 2 indie-punk musicians busy with electronic installation art and stage scores, soon to be completed by two pure-blood groove lovers on bass and drums. Since the release of their EP, 'The Talk`(2011) they write and produce as a four-piece and have shared the stage with Metronomy, Delphic, Kraftwerk and Does It Offend You Yeah, to name but a few. The band is currently planning a series of releases for 2013.

Sounds like: Interpol & Kraftwerk meet Bat for Lashes on Mutemath's favourite UFO landing spot in Sherwood Forest.

Press commentary: “Streets ahead were Hal Flavin, a stylish three-piece from Esch-sur-Alzette that refracted early Midge Ure-era Ultravox through an almost hardcore punk edge. Although it sounds unpromising, their set-closing overhaul of Eurythmics's Here Comes the Rain Again' was terrifically compelling.” (Kieron Tyler, UK journalist)
