FEATURE: HELENOR "ARTIFACT"
CATCH YOURSELF IN A MOMENT
Helenor shares self directed music video “Artifact” from upcoming debut LP something twice. “Artifact is about catching yourself in a moment. Having that feeling that the world is almost happening to you (whether a product of your own decision making or not). As for process, the video was shot by and with some good friends.”
“We spent a summer weekend both loitering at my former elementary school, and dancing in an above ground pool.”
Helenor is the musical moniker for Boston based visual artist David DiAngelis. The debut LP something twice was written and recorded at home over the greater part of a year. Drums were provided by Seth Kasper (Mass Gothic, Christopher Owens, Hooray for Earth, Wild Light, Air Traffic Controller) who also co-produced the album.
David is a working visual artist and designer, whose approach to music is heavily influenced by visual narrative. David studied at Massachusetts College of Art and Design with a concentration in Illustration, and has played in several different acts. The LP something twice was produced at home in an attempt to explore songwriting and visual concepts simultaneously.
Musical inspiration for the record came from discographies across multiple genres. From the early days of Beck to Frank Ocean, Deerhunter, Patsy Cline, Elliot Smith and more - each musician casting its own indelible mark.
