(1998 – 2008)

Ryan Coseboom met Rebecca Coseboom in 1992 while running his father’s notorious independent record store in Santa Cruz, CA. Three years later, the pair ventured north to San Francisco to pursue the sound that would eventually become Halou.

The band reformed as Stripmall Architecture in late 2008. Their discography includes: “We Only Love You” (debut LP, 1998), “Sans Soucie” (b-sides, rare and unreleased tracks, 1999), “Wiser” (2nd LP, 2001), “Threesongs” (EP, 2001) , “Oceanwide” (single/maxi-single, 2001), “The Wholeness EP” (2003), “Sans Soucie (Edition Two)” (CD Baby re-issue with extra tracks, 2004), “The Separation EP” (2006), “Wholeness & Separation” (3rd LP, 2006), “Albatross EP” (iTunes-exclusive EP, 2006), “Sawtooth EP” (limited to digital downloads, 2008), “Halou” (4th LP, 2008). (“Beneath Trembling Lanterns” (2006) is credited to Halou side-project R/R Coseboom)

Rebecca and Ryan debuted in a band called Anymore. Inspired more by dreampop bands like Cocteau Twins and less by trip-hop, the band had released only two albums: “Thistlestar E.P.” (1996) and “Umani” (1997). Minus Alex Ionov, the members of the band decided to start another project entitled Halou that would have more elements of downtempo electronica.

Halou’s debut album, We Only Love You [W.O.L.Y.], was released in 1998 on a small independent label called Bedazzled.
