Biography

  • Founded In

    Brooklyn, New York, New York, United States

Heliotropes hail from Brooklyn, NY. With a sound described as "doomy pop" - containing elements of shoegaze, goth and classic psych metal - Heliotropes blend influences from Spacemen 3, Spiritualized, Black Sabbath and My Bloody Valentine. On this lo-fi EP, the guitar riffs are murky, the drums are bludgeoning, and the shrills of the violin are haunting. But it is California native Jessica Numsuwankijkul's detached, wistful vocals - which bring to mind Richard Ashcroft meets Mazzy Star - that turn spacey dissonance into beautiful hypnotic rock.

III is an EP that shows a lot of potential for a group of talented musicians and songwriters, who are sure to carve out their own space in an exciting, emerging (and hopefully lasting) trend in independent music.

Heliotropes signed to Manimal Vinyl (Bat For Lashes, Warpaint, Sister Crayon) in early 2012 – two singles are slated for release in the Spring/Summer.
