Making their Princess debut, post-punk outfit HTRK – aka Melbourne duo Jonnine Standish and Nigel Yang – have long been one of Australia’s most essential bands, praised for their brooding, sensual soundscapes by the likes of The New Yorker, The Fader, Pitchfork, The Guardian and The Wire.
Formed in 2003, HTRK have blazed a sprawling musical trail, collaborating with the late Roland S. Howard, artists Gian Manik, David Ferrando Giraut and Laure Prouvost, scoring films, headlining sold-out international tours and releasing a string of critically acclaimed records, including Psychic 9–5 Club (2014), named among the best albums of the last decade.
Their fourth album, the richly melancholic Venus in Leo (2019) was released to more plaudits, with Pitchfork hailing the band’s sound as “sensual and gloomy . . .as harrowing as it is intimate.” HTRK’s fifth album, commissioned by the City of Melbourne’s Flash Forward project, sees its highly anticipated release in August.
