Holy Boy is the musical moniker of LA based, Norwegian-born alternative artist Helene Alexandra Jæger. Her debut EP of “explorations in consciousness” was recorded at Ben Hillier’s (Depeche Mode, The Horrors, Blur++) Pool Studios in London and released to acclaim in 2017, with single “The Blood Moon” being premiered on BBC Radio 1 and Holy Boy showcasing at festivals including CMJ, NXNE and two years running at SXSW.
Taking sonic cues from artists like Suicide, Talk Talk, The Shangri-La’s and the world of David Lynch, Holy Boy’s arrangements are sparse yet atmospheric – Jæger’s old soul contralto pushed through haunting vocal effects floats over primal drums and vintage organs. Holy Boy’s first full length album of dreamy organ rock is due 2020.
