More Info
The fourth album from HTRK, the duo of Jonnine Standish and Nigel Yang, arrives five years on from 2014's "Psychic 9-5 Club". While some much-loved HTRK hallmarks remain-the combination of space and intimacy, the unmistakable
interplay between Yang's guitars and effects and Standish's vocals-"Venus In Leo" comes with its own sonic palette.

On "Venus In Leo", Standish's vocals are crisply rendered, with songs about jealousy, longing and (anti) wellness: recipes for the drama that simmers just below the surface of mundane suburban life. There's an Instagrammer who
sets earnest thirst traps and watches the likes roll in, and a cover of Missy Elliott's "Hit Em Wit Da Hee." Listen closely and you'll hear lyrics that are tender, acerbic and desperate-sometimes all at once. While early HTRK music was spiky and raw, "Venus In Leo" is organic, representing a melodic and songwriting highpoint for the band.
