Discovery: Helenor

Helenor is an indie-rock outfit from Boston, USA who combine emotion and conscientiousness in new opus Wasteful.

By Graeme Smith

David DiAngeles, the creative force behind Helenor, is quick to stress that Wasteful is about throwing out food. The more perceptive listener may pick up another theme running through the track, one of being wasteful with love. Wasteful is a interesting track in that it manages to be simultaneously upbeat and melancholic. It feels like American indie at its purest.

Helenor’s new album, co-produced by Seth Kasper (who also plays drums), will be available in August. Meanwhile, you can check out Wasteful below.
