Through density and clarity, tranquillity and noise – Hella Comet manage to meander between the extremes of rock music. Take the essence of a 1960ies band in the vein of the Velvet Underground and the Stones and place it in a contemporary, retro-free, yet not naive and undistinguished context. This is rock music that embraces noise just as much as tasteful pop. Lea Sonnek’s vocals move from exhaustion to ecstasy, post-punk meets shoegaze – and none of these elements ever phase each other out, they merely work together to form a cohesive whole. Hella Comet pile up force and fragility in a way that adds to their overall sound. This is rock of the postmodern age and stands atop a giant pile of music history with a cheeky grin on their face.
