Halogen biography

(1)1998 Australian five-piece (2)2007 ambient-glitch producer from Brighton, UK (1)Halogen is a five-piece band from Perth, Western Australia. Formed in 1998 by two expatriate New Zealanders - Jasmine Yee and Frans Bisschop - the band first gained national prominence in Australia through the song "Hole Around My Heart" from their "Somewhere You're Alone" recording. With the release of the single "Walkaway" and an accompanying tour of Australia's east coast (including a showcase performance at the Australian Music Week), the band furthered their claim for national attention. The single received solid airplay on national broadcaster Triple J and a follow up came in the form of "On A Bridge". Both singles found their way onto the band's debut album "Save the Ones You Love". Rather than take a traditional recording approach for their follow up album "Building On The Edge Of The Sky", songwriters Jasmine Yee and Frans Bisschops directed each composition to a different emerging producer. The result was a brilliant, if somewhat eclectic, recording taking Halogen away from the brooding guitars that previously typified their sound and into the realm of electronica.

Weaving jazz and post-rock influences into a glitchy electronic frame work, his music references Minimalist composition and IDM tonalities. His debut album, 'Baked', is released on Maternity.
