“Holy Boy stuns: Utterly immersive; smoky and classic” – The Line Of Best Fit
“Slow-paced but fast-burning – minimal yet wholly effecting. An artist whose span results in extremely special music” – Clash Magazine
“Mystifying and atmospheric. Can see Holy Boy rising quickly through the ranks of the indie-pop world in the near future.” – Earmilk.com
Holy Boy is the musical moniker of Los Angeles based artist Helene Alexandra Jæger. Drawing on a broad palette of sonic influences to conjure her dystopian imagery Holy Boy cites the industrial drone of Suicide, alongside 60s pop and classic West Coast hip-hop and beat poetry as influences, Jæger describes her songwriting as “explorations in consciousness”.
Her music is sparse, atmospheric and wholly effecting – Jæger’s old soul contralto voice pushed through haunting vocal effects float over vintage organs set to stun.
Holy Boy’s debut EP was released to critical acclaim in 2017, with single “The Blood Moon” being premiered on BBC Radio 1 and Holy Boy performing at festivals including CMJ, NXNE and SXSW.
Her debut EP was recorded at Ben Hillier’s (Depeche Mode, The Horrors, Blur++) Pool Studios in London and her first full length album is set for release late 2022.
