Sounds | HELGA, Battle Song

January 1, 2019


Half november kreeg ik deze video doorgespeeld via Mike de Coene van Hardlife Promotion. Ik was meteen geïntrigeerd door zowel het visuele als muzikale aspect, maar 'parkeerde' de info toch om later nog eens te bekijken. Bij de release van haar debuut EP Nebulous kreeg ik opnieuw alle info mooi toegespeeld en opnieuw deed ik er niets mee. Derde keer goede keer moeten ze gedacht hebben: deze keer was het Carl-Marcus Gidlöf (Icons Creating Evil Art, de man en het label achter de fantastische Louise Lemón) die me uitnodigde om de Facebook pagina van HELGA te 'liken'. Ondertussen knallen de songs hier zowat doorlopend uit mijn speakers....ik doe er dus eindelijk wat mee.

Een introductie.

Hailing from the forests of Dalarna, Sweden, Helga writes music from the confines of her cabin. Living in the wilderness with just her guitar for company has given her songwriting a unique sense of introspection. Helga tells us that the new songs are “a musical translation of my inner and physical world. I personally love reverb-drenched music and sounds, drawing inspiration from my dream world, the misty forests, and Swedish folk music.”
After jumping around between different musical projects, Helga decided to go solo in late 2016 pursuing a career as a singer-songwriter. Anxious to release the melodies that had been stuck in her head for months, she self-released a demo EP in October 2016 that would later lead to various musical collaborations in the rock and metal world. Life happened in 2017, but that didn’t stop her from crafting riffs and writing songs. By the beginning of 2018 she started recording an EP with musicians across the globe. Landing her first record deal in May, Helga’s first single ‘Battle Song’ was released in August, following a second single ‘In The Wilderness’ in November, and an EP ‘Nebulous’ to be released in December. Helga is exploring her musical universe. You’ll never know what you’ll hear next.
