Track Premiere: The Ghost of Helags – ‘Wildest Dreams’
A shy Scandinavian electronica-pop duo, filtered through Berlin grit, The Ghost of Helags deliver an homage to nature and dreams. “I like the way the sun feels on my skin…I like the way the night gives in…” is the opening line of their new single “Wildest Dreams”. The track itself was recorded in a cabin, deep in the wilderness, where the two fell asleep daily to the sound of wolves howling in the wind outside. “Wildest Dreams” is the first single from the band since the release of their debut EP “Shibuya” (March 2017). It is also the first part of a double A-Side release where the next offering will be sonically focusing on their newly adopted city of Berlin. The Ghost of Helags’ music is published by Misty Music, home of Fever Ray and Anna Von Hausswolff.
Everything started on top of the mountain of Helags, located on the border between Sweden and Norway, where a paranormal experience led them to start making music. The duo is the meeting of a singer and a producer who has worked with big acts in the past. As a band, they are very quiet, introverted and shy. They never speak on stage. Instead, they choose to communicate with the audience through dance and body language.
