Pitchfork writes: Laurel Halo’s swirling music sounds like an evocation of virtual landscapes—a response to the disorienting effect of continual contact in the Information Age. Halo references the “glow” of social networking and its cult of positivity. But the sonic glow on her debut album Quarantine derives from a heat of authenticity: an aggressive search for a direct connection with people, not the cold corporate achievement of a Like. Putting new focus on her voice, it’s a sometimes discomforting listen that’s a tight fit for the Hyperdub label, with its mix of nostalgia (Burial, King Midas Sound) and futurism (Ikonika, DVA); and for a wired state of mind. We talked to Halo about dream worlds, superheroes, and the fantasy of gaming.
