Starting life as a thrash band back in 2013 with a sought after 7" it's taken two quiet years for Helen to release this hugely anticipated debut long player. The group, composed of Jed Bindeman, Scott Simmons and Liz Harris pulls together a fine blend of swirling ambient shoegaze pop recalling The Chills and Psychocandy fuzz but perfectly fragmented with the would-rather-be-sleeping drone folk of Harris's Grouper project across the twelve tracks on show. Brimming with warmth and catchy pop melodies but laid with a healthy dose of outsider angst this is one to spend some proper time with.
