Montreal singer-songwriter Helena Deland calls her music ‘sincere pop’. It’s so much more than that though – across four short volumes (instead of over a full record) she’s released songs that reveal her to have a unique eye for melody and texture. The intricate, intimate music is beautifully disjointed and turns emotional turmoil into transcendent pop.
Deland released her debut in 2016 with the Drawing Room EP, but the volumes of Altogether Unaccompanied have seen her take huge leaps forward as she deftly moves from Americana-tinged indie rock to folk and woozy synth balladry. Listen to “Take It All”, a bubbling, brilliant trip-hop song that highlights her mastery of space and sound – and then get ready for a spellbinding live show.
