One of Australia's most esteemed bands, HTRK formed in Melbourne in 2003 as the trio of vocalist Jonnine Standish, bassist Sean Stewart (d.2010) and guitarist Nigel Yang. Their early live shows caught the attention of ex-Birthday Party guitarist Rowland S. Howard who went on to produce their now classic debut "Marry Me Tonight". In 2006 the band relocated to Europe, toured widely and signed with electronic labels blastfirstpetite and Ghostly International. Stewart's suicide in 2010 left Standish and Yang reeling, yet they continued to record and released the intense, texture-laden "Work (work, work)" in 2011 to critical acclaim. After returning to Australia in 2012, Standish and Yang decamped to the deserts of New Mexico to produce their third and latest album "Psychic 9-5 Club" (2014), a dub-wise meditation on altered states and "inner peace" that struck deep with critics and fans the world over.
The duo's fourth studio album was recorded in Melbourne in 2018 and is due for release in August 2019.


Latest release :

HTRK - Venus In Leo Album - Ghostly International, release in August 30, 2019
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 Standish's vocals—Venus in Leo differs markedly in its energy, returning to HTRK’s underground rock past with the stylistic playfulness and variety of a modern mixtape.

The Track "You Know How to Make Me Happy" is included in their new HTRK album :




HTRK - Drama EP - Ghostly International, release July 6th, 2018
The new single was recorded by band members Jonnine Standish and Nigel Yang at Standish's home in the Dandenong Ranges near Melbourne. It sees the duo reflecting on a period of instability.
Standish explores a lack of physical intimacy in the social media age (on 'Mentions') and tries to coax back someone who's given up (on 'More to Enjoy'), while Yang's guitar lines curl slowly through the air.

The single precedes their new HTRK full-length album, to be released in August 2019.
