It’s no coincidence that this Canadian act shares a name with a popular Welsh lullaby. A very well titled track ‘Tornto’ is melodic, full of lo-fi goodness and features an eerily similar vocal pitch to another notable act who are masters of this type of atmosphere Sigur Rós. With a very soothing riff cropping up nearer the latter half before nosediving into some fuzzy, near distorted territory, Henoheno have crafted a very calming formula that acts as a suitable substitute in their genre full of high octane snarling guitars and ambiguous lyrics. Whether you’re relaxing, reading or revising, ‘Toronto’ is the perfect companion to any placid pastime.
Henoheno’s new album Canada is out on 14 April via Fox Food Records.
