Everything about HDLSS appears to suggest gothic influences, but darkness is noticeably absent from the music they create. The duo, comprised of Far and Wolfy, calls their sound “nocturnal pop,” aware of the dissonance they’ve created; they actively add to it by writing about issues that can make some audiences uncomfortable. “Colonizer,” after all, refers to the gentrifiers that erase the cultural identity of the very metropolitan areas that would champion their music: LA’s Echo Parkers and New York’s Brooklynites alike.
