Smooth vocals, echoing beats and sultry synth textures disarm listeners on ‘Chemistry’, the latest track from The Ghost of Helags. The Berlin-based duo penned the track after a late night drive from Vienna to Prague, reflecting on their feelings of loneliness and longing.
Formed of Swedish born Teresa Woischiski and John Alexander Ericson, The Ghost of Helags combine sharp production with their love of dream pop and David Lynch’s shadowy film scores to create their brooding electronic sounds. “There’s nothing left out there that makes me scared, nothing” sings Woischiski on ‘Chemistry’, which centres around both the intimate power and fear of being completely by ones self.
“The song was written in January this year on a foggy late night drive from Vienna to Prague” reflects Woischiski. “We didn’t meet many cars and it was a very dense fog so it felt a bit like driving through outer space.” This feeling of other-worldliness permeates the track, allowing momentary escape from all earthly doubts and fears.
