Collaborating musicians daniel aron and siblings Babapiros and HALOSARA have unveiled their first single together, ‘Heaven Sent’, on 28 June 2024 via Théque Records. The track premiered via notable tastemaker EARMILK. The newly-formed trio are launching a new project, with more songs on the way and plans to gig on the horizon. They have been playing music together for years, but finally decided that they wanted to put out their own ‘pseudo-gospel’ music. daniel aron (Daniel Varga), is a multi-instrumentalist who has crafted a unique space in the music world with his collaborations in new wave jazz, hip hop, and beat-driven music. Babapiros, a.k.a. Geri Háló, is a drummer (but also a multi-instrumentalist) and touring musician whose former band Mongooz and the Magnet enjoyed global success and touring, with their song ‘Never Know’ notably appearing on the acclaimed US TV show Shameless. HALOSARA a.k.a. Sára Háló is the sister of Geri Háló. A singer and keyboard player, she appeared on the latest mïus album, which earned praise from the likes of CLASH Magazine, Rinse Fm, and When We Dip.

The Budapest-based trio are no strangers to the city’s gig circuit. daniel aron is a key player in Budapest’s new wave jazz scene, he also studied at the University of Music and Performing Arts Graz (KUG). Babapiros is a core member of Budapest-based bands like Meteo, Kolibri, and O’SULLIVAN. He is also a touring musician of ten years for artists like Zóra or Beton.Hofi and Birmingham-based artist Call Me Unique, and has toured all over the globe with Mongooz and the Magnet. While Sára is a relative newcomer to the scene, she has also worked together with notable acts like MYGL and mïus. Citing Justin Vernon and Dijon as common influences, the trio’s sound in their debut single together also draws from influences from their Christian upbringings and various other projects that they have been involved in, ‘Heaven Sent’ is reminiscent of contemporary R&B/ Neo Soul powerhouses Erykah Badu, D’Angelo, Solange and BADBADNOTGOOD. Their first offering is a promising taste of what is to come.

‘Heaven Sent’ opens with tender guitar licks and HALOSARA’s sweet vocals. The groove kicks in with a gooey, expansive bassline, sultry backbeat and passionate yet gentle gospel harmonies. daniel aron’s horns and brass warm the piece up. It is a gorgeously soulful track, featuring an intricate array of instruments brimming with musicality.

Babapiros shared: “The song basically started from the riff you hear in the chorus played by the guitar and the brass section. Funny story, I came up with that thing years back as a live outro sort of thing for O’SULLIVAN’s ‘Dig Gold’ that never actually made the album recording. But it always felt like we could build a song around that. I like the idea that we shared a similar christian upbringing with Sára (HALOSARA) and Dani (Daniel Aron). Even though ‘Heaven Sent’ is not a worship song in the traditional sense, it does feel like one to me.”
