The Helio Sequence – “October”
While touring in support of its 2008 release Keep Your Eyes Ahead, The Helio Sequence lost its practice space/studio in a monstrous flood. Consequently, the Portland duo was forced to change its approach to recording. Now, more than four years have passed, and on September 11th the duo will finally release its fifth album, Negotiations.
The album’s first single, “October,” is a little more dreamy than previous releases. It would actually be pretty easy to confuse it as a Beach House track at first. According to the duo, we can look forward to themes of solitude, hope, memory, misgivings, loss, and atonement peppered throughout the album.
