Musician Tom Shear [Assemblage 23, Nerve Filter, Surveillance] and vocalist Mari Kattman [Day Twelve, Mari and the Ghost, Mari Kattman] are no strangers to collaboration, having worked together several times over the past five years. So it seemed to be a natural conclusion that the duo embark on a project all their own. The result is Helix â€“ a genre-defying sonic tapestry mixing electronics and organic elements with Kattmanâ€™s haunting vocal harmonies. Elements of trip-hop, dub, dream pop, synth-pop, and lofi combine into a mÃ©lange of seductive beats, found sounds, eerie textures, and distant melodies cutting through the fog like a distant lighthouse. Beats for sleepwalkers and insomniacs. Cinema for your ears at 2 AM.
Helix will be making its debut on the next Electronic Saviours compilation on Metropolis Records, with a full-length album out later this year. In the meantime, please follow the official Helix Facebook page for the latest updates as they become available.
