HTRK, to be pronounced as 'HateRock', began performing in 2003 as a duo consisting of Sean Stewart and Nigel Yang, both ex-members of Portraits of Hugo Perez. Later adding vocalist Jonnine Standish, the group took on a more haunting sound. On 22nd March 2010, HTRK announced the death of Sean Stewart: "Sean Stewart R.I.P. b. 6 Feb 1981, d.18 Mar 2010". Since then the group is made up of Jonnine Standish (wife of Conrad Standish) and Nigel Yang.

Citing such major influences as the electronic music label Mego, The Birthday Party (Rowland S. Howard being their mentor and initial producer just before his death), Krautrock, David Lynch and Suicide, HTRK combined highly textured guitar noise with groove-laden basslines and profound drum machine patterns.
