HELENA DELAND Shares Tranquil ‘Rise’ Off Of ‘Altogether Unaccompanied’. October 19th.

We’d reviewed HELENA DELAND on her single ‘Claudion’ and to be a bit understated, we loved it stating: “HELENA DELAND’s newest single release ‘Claudion’ is so melty and crispy and mesmerizing, that we didn’t know what to do about it for a while. But then we let things breathe, clean out our lungs, and absorbed what this single was all about. And the depth of the product is what HELENA DELAND has always been: dynamic, innovative, seductive.”

Now the Montreal based songstress is back with ‘Rise’ the second track from her upcoming publication ‘Altogether Unaccompanied’.

In an interview with Northern Transmissions she said of ‘Rise’: “longing for a closeness that’s always just out of reach” with someone “who is very reserved, very protected.”

She continues her journey in presenting us with the ‘unmapped’ trek in her Universe within Universes, taking back some curtains, then drawing them closed in one breath.

“The songs are to be considered as their own little things,” she says about her unconventional release structure. “They are part of something larger, yes, but they live on their own.”

“I’m learning to be really patient,” she says, “I can’t really force writing. When I’m ready to write a song the words and melody are usually there.”

Her 4th quarter touring schedule starts soon.
