If you've ever fallen in love with somebody who lives in a neighbouring street, a person you see often but hardly know, if at all, then these memories or wistful feelings now have a perfect soundtrack in Heligoland.
Since the beginning of 2007 the band have been based in Paris, having relocated from their native Australia to tour Europe in support of their second album A Street Between Us.
Produced by Cocteau Twins' mastermind Robin Guthrie, they have just completed a trilogy of EPs, each one recorded in a different région of their adopted country.
She Owl is Italian duo Jolanda Moletta and Demian Endian. Compared to My Brightest Diamond and Shannon Wright, their debut album is a passionate record with haunted vocals and shamanic influences.
Vocalist, pianist, and primary songwriter, Moletta is front and centre in both the band’s recordings and live shows. Endian contributes inventive and enigmatic guitar lines that hint at psychedelic, no wave, and experimental influences.
