Following her debut full-length album ‘Quarantine’, Laurel Halo returns to Hyperdub this month to release her forthcoming new single ‘Sunlight On The Faded’, which was premiered on Belgian’s Radio Scorpio show ‘Sterrenplaten’ last Friday.

Drenched in delayed dubs and rhythm-shuffling percussion, it’s a loose and tender lurch of a beat, evoking a sense of recklessness, as the rhythm slowly builds up and stamps out the main stretch towards Halo’s crooning and meltingly sweet vocals. Making use of granular, isolated soul pads, Sunlight On The Faded is a departure from the avant-garde ‘Quarantine’. Instead, Halo takes on a warmer, sleeker approach in her electronic landscape, really tapping into the deeply romantic ambience in which the power of the release lies.

Hyperdub will release Laurel Halo – ‘Sunlight On The Faded’ on 12” vinyl and digital format on 10th December, 2012
