HALO CIRCUS are a highly acclaimed Los Angeles based electronic duo featuring star singer Allison Iraheta and producer Matthew Hager. Formerly a four piece rock band, Halo Circus have returned as a compelling synth-pop duo, with a sparkling new album Robots and Wranglers, mixed by Grammy Award winner Craig Bauer (Rihanna, Kanye West). The record is a concept album that sees the duo at the top of their game, seemingly right at home making a stylistic electronic record that feels like it was always there, right in the duos creative wheelhouse. Gone are the rock stylings of Bunny, replaced this time around with finely crafted synth-pop gems,clad with sometimes minimal, occasionally lush electronic arrangements. What remains in the fold is Irahetas recognizably dark vocals and introspective lyrical approachhallmarks of the band and the kind of superstar traits that have won over fans nationwide.
The album is already being hailed as a cinematic, electronic work of fiction set in 2018.The recent flurry of attention surrounding Halo Circus has resulted in massive opportunities for the group. Allison Iraheta has lended her powerhouse vocals to various notable projects, including appearing on the recent NIN EP Add Violence, on the song Less Than.
In addition, new FOX singing competition The Fourfeaturing Sean Combs, DJ Khaled, and Meghan Trainorreached out to Allison to help work on the pilot, citing her as a trailblazing artist that is pushing the boundaries of music and the business of music. More at home as a duo than ever before, Iraheta and Hager have tapped into the reduced essence of their creativity and are ready for their formal arrival. Armed with a new album of inspiring electro-pop tracks, and one of the most supportive fanbases in the country, they will be hitting the road this March on a nationwide tour.
