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 - 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.
