Sounds | Helga - Alive Again


Wat blijft die Helga Gabriel toch zalige en pakkende nummers schrijven. Deze keer gaat ze de dark folk toer op en laat ze opnieuw horen wat een straffe zangeres ze is. Al bij al is deze song vrij ingetogen en neemt de akoestische gitaar het voortouw. Toch blijft het geheel zeer intens. Derde single in de aanloop naar het nieuwe album en opnieuw een schot in de roos. Ik krijg bijna een krop in de keel van zoveel moois.


Dit schreef ik over haar eerste EP The Autumn Lament.


Wrapped in Mist verschijnt op 24 november 2023 via Season Of Mist.

"Alive Again", the album's poignant third single, serves as a haunting and introspective exploration of the tribulations associated with mental health. Here, delicate guitar riffs interlace with austere percussive arrangements, creating a hauntingly evocative backdrop for Helga Gabriel's chilling vocals to take center stage.


"I've had my fair share of battles with mental health over the years." Says vocalist Helga Gabriel. "It's in those moments that I need music the most."


The creation of "Alive Again" bears testament to Helga's personal struggle during a profoundly dark period of her life. This track serves as a cathartic vessel, providing her with the emotional outlet to convey the profound emotions that characterized this challenging chapter.


A visually striking and emotionally resonant animated music video, masterfully crafted by Yevheniia Vynokurova (@magistrmagii), accompanies this track. The video eloquently encapsulates the lyrical depth of 'Alive Again,' offering an intimate and introspective portrayal that strikes a chord with viewers on a deeply personal level.
