Helena Deland – Someone New [Streaming]

Today, Montreal’s Helena Deland dropped the long-awaited, highly-anticipated debut album Someone New via Luminelle Records.
There is alot hype surrounding Helena Deland’s music.
Someone New kind of reminds me of another musician who name is Emilie Kahn with that soft angelic voice but Helena doesn’t play the harp.
The whole album is stunningly beautiful with synth pop and lo-fi music.
One of the boldest Montreal indie pop music to come out in 2020.

About the album:
Someone New is an exploration of gender, power, time and the “self” that finds Deland in full control of her sound and style, even as she asks whether control is ever possible.
The album was written and recorded over a period of two years, beginning with Deland’s guitar and expanding into a lavish sonic sphere that blends elements of synth pop and classic folk. Deland’s voice ties it all together, sometimes hushed in a whisper, sometimes shrouded in distortion, and sometimes full and clear – but always inviting the listener into her world.

Once Deland was ready to emerge from the solitary part of her songwriting process, she brought the songs to long-time friend Valentin Ignat to flesh out the arrangements. They recorded at a Montréal studio with her band before Deland took the album to New York for additional production and mixing with friend and collaborator Gabe Wax.
