The NSFW downtempo delights of Belau

Nu-wave, chillwave, surfing on sine waves… If any of these references mean something to you, we would highly recommend the new music of Hungarian duo Belau. To say nothing of their vinyl and videos.

Colourwave by Belau is out now and – as you can see – is quite a thing of beauty. 180g splatter vinyl, limited to just 150 units in a heavyweight (5mm-spined) hand-numbered sleeve complete with three lyric sheets.

It’s highly desirable not just for the vinyl production but also for the music. For a taster, check out the two videos below: the xx-meets-Morcheeba of Essence feat. Sophie Barker where the band is live in session, or the NSFW (with clever a twist at the end) psychodrama visuals of the Foals-meets-Metronomy of Island of Promise feat. Hegyi Dóri.
