Melbourne trio Huntly are pleased to present their sophomore EP Songs In Your Name featuring previously released track Please and leading single Tempelhof.
Tempelhof showcases Huntly’s trademark approach to evocative dance music, conjuring a rich, emotional rave to intoxicate listeners. A sensual R&B jam that starts with a question and ends with an explosive drum & bass breakdown, Tempelhof is about age-old lust and euphoria. Carried by Elspeth’s vivid lyricism, airy synths, and dynamic crafted beats, the track is a rapturous call to vulnerability and catharsis, Huntly’s call to arms.
Huntly describes the EP: “We fell in love, we got rejected and we rode down airstrips together listening to Jon Hopkins. Get sad, write a banger. The cycle continues. Songs in Your Name is a dedication - to our friends who are our lovers, who let us go and stayed up all night with us in a big soft bed with the fan up so high it almost spun right off and decapitated us. These Songs are in Your Name, we are the voice”.
Huntly have been building a reputation as one of Australia’s most dynamic and evocative live electronic acts, with their single We Made It surpassing over 1 million plays on Spotify.
More recently, released late 2016, Please secured praise from local and international tastemakers, i-D, Ohestee, Lucifer’s Monocle and more. The track has also been rinsed on the airwaves, from a series of features on Spotify, triple j and FBi Radio. Huntly have also recently been named an “under the radar act to discover” by Double J and “artist to watch in 2017” by Purple Sneakers
Pulsing between the borders of Melbourne’s experimental R&B scenes, Huntly will again charter new territory with their EP Songs in Your Name, out now. Available digitally and on limited edition 10” vinyl by Lathe Cut (cut by hand, hand numbered and hand stamped label) via Neat Lawn.
