Halou, Strange Cities, TBD image

HALOU was created as the DIY project of husband/wife duo Rebecca and Ryan Coseboom, who began releasing tracks from their bedroom in the suburbs of San Francisco in 1997. Halou quickly gained attention from labels and radio and released their first album, WE ONLY LOVE YOU, in 1998.

Drummer/co-producer Count joined shortly after and the new three-piece Halou signed to “major indie,” Nettwerk, for their second album, WISER. The album gained the band a cult following and influential outlets like KEXP and KCRW helped spread the word, helping the band secure slots at major festivals, receive considerable acclaim from influential press outlets, and build a devoted fanbase.

As Halou worked on their third album, WHOLENESS AND SEPARATION, Ryan and Count began a successful run remixing artists like Frank Sinatra, Depeche Mode, Lyrics Born and Rod Stewart (Halou’s remix reached #1 on Billboard’s dance charts) and the band appeared as guests on records by DJ Shadow and Velvet Underground legend John Cale.

Rebecca, who CMJ described as "a female front woman with an incredible voice – proves she has enough swagger and sway to keep things interesting without ever being overstated” has worked with producer John Fryer (Cocteau Twins, Depeche Mode, Yaz, This Mortal Coil, etc.), the Lumerians, and UNKLE.

Their fourth album, simply titled HALOU, and featuring Cocteau Twins guitarist Robin Guthrie, was previewed during a US tour with indie icon, Bob Mould, and showcased a more guitar-oriented sound than their previous releases.

The Welcome Stranger EP was released in April 2021 and the band is currently working on a new album.

Formed from the ashes of several San Francisco Bay Area bands (In Letter Form, Murder of Lilies, I Am Animal), Strange Cities brings you nostalgia, bittersweetness, melancholy, sparkle sighs, broken laughter, whiskey tears, and angry nights.
