HTRK’s seminal debut “Nostalgia” (2007) gets a new cut to white vinyl with white sleeve and gloss cover.
An abrasive record shrouded in sonorous pulses, deafening feedback and tension-soaked reverb that immerses you deep into their world. HTRK’s lo-fi post-punk, post-industrial noise-electronica echoes Suicide, Throbbing Gristle and Joy Division.
“Nostalgia” took inspiration from the sound and imagery of David Lynch, The Birthday Party and electronic artist Pita. Rowland S Howard’s ‘Teenage Snuff Film’ was also cited as a big influence, HTRK notably caught the post-punk legend’s attention with their live gigs which saw him endorse the band and go on to co-produce their next release ‘Marry Me Tonight’.
A compelling introductory statement that delves into their guilty nostalgia for the nihilistic energies rampant in the 80s underground.
