Born out of the ashes of cult band Barefoot Contessa, Helene bring a new lithe and lissom sound to their new album 'Routines'. Helene's acute lyrical insights;
purring organ swirls, sensual slide guitars, Byrdsian jangles, and a dreamy production sheen courtesy of ex-Cocteau Twins Bella Union head honcho Simon Raymonde, who calls Helene the 'greatest lyricist in Britain right now'.
With a voice which calls to mind Nancy Sinatra without the trust fund -
slightly careworn but gorgeously expressive -Helene seems to be able to
dive effortlessly into areas of humanity which the rest of us are either
too scared or too sensible to approach.
