Dense walls of guitar sounds and the ethereal vocals of bass player Lea Sonnek – the comparison with Sonic Youth suggests itself, shoegaze elements are also undeniable. But this doesn't quite describe it all: the music of the Graz-based quartet also draws inspiration from various post-rock acts of the 1990s, as can be deduced from song lengths beyond seven minutes and cunning drum beats. For years, Hella Comet have been developing their very own language, before their debut-album Celebrate Your Loss was finally released in 2010 on Pumpkin Records, followed by a 10" on the Viennese label Noise Appeal in 2011. The new album is due later this year on Noise Appeal Records, with the release-show set to take place at Elevate Festival.
