After the stunning single ‘Chemistry’, followed by an exclusive Live in Session with Backseat Mafia (if you haven’t already – go and subscribe), Berlin residents The Ghost of Helags are back with a gorgeous ambient-filled track ‘Parallel’. It is a shimmering slice of euro-disco electro-pop that thrums and vibrates with an insistent rhythm and driving force.
According to Teresa Woischiski, the song was inspired by the power of live music:
We were in a studio in Antibes on the French Riviera working on new material, where one night we happened to stumble upon an open air concert in a park in Juan les Pins from The Chemical Brothers. It was super inspiring watching these two gentlemen showing everybody how it’s done. So inspiring, that we went straight back to the studio, right after the gig, and started messing about with the loop that eventually turned into ‘Parallel.’
The long intro is hypnotic with its synth bass chops and arpeggios, building up the tension before erupting onto a sweet pop reverie that evokes a sense of endless out door raves in the summer: a warm embracing nostalgia in the current era:
The Ghost of Helags are singer-songwriter and producer duo Teresa Woischiski and John Alexander Ericson. Hailing from Sweden and now located in Berlin, this dynamic duo continue to deliver dream pop soundscapes of the highest order..
