Live Eye TV, July 2019

HTRK return with a brand new video for their track “You Know How to Make Me Happy” off the upcoming LP Venus in Leo due out on August 30th via Ghostly International. Featuring the duo of Jonnine Standish and Nigel Yang, the pair’s fourth long-player is their first since 2014’s Psychic 9-5 Club. Recorded at their home studio in the Dandenong Ranges outside of Melbourne, the album features HTRK’s trademark combinations of space and intimacy while returning them closer to their underground rock past.

Mindies, July 2019

El dúo australiano establecido en Londres, formado por Jonnine Standish y Nigel Yang, acaba de anunciar el que será su primer trabajo en 5 años. Con una carrera donde el pop minimalista, donde las bases sintéticas están muy presentes dentro de un apartado de lo más recogido, el grupo ha logrado un sonido de lo más personal y envolvente.

Resident Advisor, July 2019 by Nina Posner

The record, out in August on Ghostly International, marks the band's return to their "underground rock past."

Das Filter, July 2019 by Thaddeus Herrmann

Wie man sich manchmal doch häuten und verändern kann. Vom ursprünglichen Sound von HTRK ist mit den Jahren kaum noch etwas übrig geblieben – von der halsbrecherischen Melancholie mal abgesehen. [...] Den Sturm und Drang von damals haben die beiden verbliebenden Band-Mitglieder Jonnine Standish und Nigel Yang mittlerweile gegen sanfte Synths getauscht, die nicht nur gut in die songwriterische Ecke der Gruppe passen, sondern auch den ätherischen, immer leicht verhuscht klingenden Gesang perfekt auffangen.

XLR8R, July 2019

Venus In Leo arrives five years on from 2014's Psychic 9-5 Club. While the HTRK hallmarks remain—the combination of space and intimacy, the interplay between Yang's guitars and Standish's vocals—the album differs in its energy, returning to HTRK’s underground rock past with the stylistic playfulness and variety of a modern mixtape. It was recorded more or less live in HTRK’s home studio in the Dandenong Ranges outside of Melbourne, Australia.

Clubbing Spain, July 2019

Jonnine Standish y Nigel Yang vuelven con su proyecto HTRK para publicar su cuarto álbum, un disco titulado Venus In Leo que llega cinco años después de su anterior trabajo, Psychic 9-5 club. La pareja australiana iniciaron el proyecto en 2003 aunque los primero frutos de su trabajo conjunto no llegarían hasta 2005, año en el que se autoeditan Nostalgia. A principios de la década comienzan a publicar en Ghostly, sello al que regresan tras autoeditarse un par de EPs el pasado 2018.

Stack, November 2018

HTRK, Dying Of Jealousy
Jonnine Standish and Nigel Yang have put their magical HTRK heads together once again and conjured a Massive Attack’s Protection-esque, ethereal club reverie with their new single Dying of Jealousy. Quite frankly it’s got me dying of delight. You can catch the launch of this unearthly belter on Saturday December 1 at Yours & Mine in Melbourne.

Inverted Audio, November 2018

Melbourne-based downtempo duo HTRK continue their return to our minds with the release of a new two-track single ‘Dying Of Jealously‘ out today via Ghostly International.

Clubbing Spain, November 2018

Ghostly International ha lanzado hoy un nuevo EP de los australianos HTRK, aka Jonnine Standish y Nigel Yang, compuesto por dos temas entre los que está este Dying Of Jealously.

clubbingspain.com/mp3/2018/htrk-dying-of-jealousy.html

Filter Mexico, November 2018

Para tener un panorama muchísimo más claro, Jonnine Standish y Nigel Yang acaban de publicar las dos canciones que le dan vida a este ensamble de 12″ que se podrá conseguir de forma oficial el 1 de diciembre. Por un lado está el track homónimo, “Dying Of Jealousy”, con una ambientación minimalista que se apega a la estética seductora del trip hop, pero una vez que entra la voz de Jonnine comenzamos a ser sometidos en una sesión de hedonismo puro.

Post-Punk, November 2018

Australian duo HTRK have been flirting with a new record for some time now, and have just offered up another pair of tracks today as a digital single via Ghostly International. The tracks are currently available to listen via streaming platforms as well as to purchase through Ghostly’s webstore.

www.post-punk.com/htrk-offer-new-digital-single-dying-of-jealousy

XLR8R, November 2018

The two-track release follows the Melbourne duo's recent Drama single, self-released earlier this year.
"Dying of Jealousy" features Standish's vocals mining the vaults of unhealthy desire as drum loops rove across the sonic spectrum. It's backed by the spacious "Summer Rain." Like "Dying of Jealousy," themes of power and mind games creep into the lyrics, but this time they're smeared across a dirty slow club jam that evokes feelings of eyes-closed, swaying-on-the-dancefloor.

Resident Advisor, November 2018

Is this the duo's best track since Psychic 9-5 Club? It's out Friday.

THE AGE, 31.10.2013
The extraordinary globe-trotting Australian duo HTRK – pronounced Haterock – are in so many ways an art piece rather than two musicians. They are an installation. The music is sparse and often difficult electronica but it is also ringed by incredible halos of beauty. The humans within all this seem incidental and occasionally quite separate from the music. What they do is beautiful, if it is beauty…

THE QUIETUS, 31.10.2013: Interview: HTRK
The last time HTRK played London, at the Garage in October 2011, that unremarkable venue shook with monumental yet minimalist bass, the dry ice crackled with static. It was a deeply impressive performance by the Melbourne-based duo, part of their brave return after the suicide of founder member Sean Stewart in March 2010.
This autumn, they come back to the UK after a two year absence to play two very different live dates. The first, on Friday November 15th, is for an event at the BFI in tribute to the late guitarist Rowland S Howard. The night (details and tickets here) will feature a screening of Rowland S Howard documentary Autoluminescent, alongside live performances by HTRK and...
