THE GHOST OF HELAGS
RELEASE VIDEO FOR
‘NIGHT SUMMER WAITING’
Shot in one-take, the video captures the duo on a late night drive through their home city of Berlin.
Streaming on all platforms now – the single is the latest to emerge from a new album planned for early on in 2021.
Driven by its crisp electronic percussion, ‘Night Summer Waiting’ recalls the majestic dream-pop masterworks of Still Corners or Chromatics. The song was written earlier in 2020, at a small Italian hilltop town under the fading Summer sun.
“Watching the world with restless eyes… keep up, don’t fall behind” sings Teresa Woischiski, lyrics defiant with notions of escapism, yet tinted with a world-wary melancholy.
“Night Summer Waiting, what you keep within, you can do without”, she lulls, her crystalline vocal rising through layers of dreamy atmospheric synthesisers and elegiac piano motifs.
The Ghost of Helags are singer-songwriter and producer duo Teresa Woischiski and John Alexander Ericson. Hailing from Sweden and now located in Berlin, the pairing combine the dream pop sounds of their Scandinavian roots with the electronic nuances inspired by their newfound home and beyond.
‘Night Summer Waiting’ is the latest in a string of innovative and exploratory tracks by the duo and follows recent 2020 singles including the Chemical Brothers-inspired ‘Parallel’ and the seductive Lynchian-inspired synth-pop of recent single ‘Chemistry’. Other highlights of their continually expanding repertoire include the New Music Friday playlisted debut single ‘I Carry Your Heart’, ‘Autobahn Lullaby’ (a tribute to their Berlin home) and 2019’s hymnal ‘The Santa Rosa Song’.
The instant captivating hook of the intense vocals protruding through the infectious waves of electronic elements, building up the vast soundscape. Night Summer Waiting transports the audience back to those late hot evenings, an essence of freedom and memory-making moments is somehow found in the reflective vibe of this track. The Ghost of Helags continue to create emotive electronic music which resonates deeply with their audience, they carefully create their own unique vibe which connects those listeners and makes it feel like their own world.
A track that sees The Ghost Of Helags finding perfect harmony in their sound, ‘Night Summer Waiting’ is streaming on all platforms now.
