HALIENE delivers sentient debut album ‘HEAVENLY’

HALIENE puts her lyrical and vocal artistry on its most comprehensive display yet on her debut album HEAVENLY, a project that finds the singer-songwriter unapologetically standing in her power. Lyrically, the LP bleeds with the rawness and poignancy that comes with confronting “subjects that cause us to question and wrestle with our deepest nature, like vulnerability, finding strength in fragility, grief and loss, forgiveness, transformation, unconditional love, intuition, and connections that seem to transcend time and plans of existence,” says HALIENE. There is no eschewing of emotion on HEAVENLY; it aches when it needs to, but from these experiences come clarity and eventually, strength. HALIENE traces this vault in a poetic fashion across HEAVENLY‘s 12 tracks, though it’s worth noting that not all of them are sung. The LP’s intro and outro are monologues that conceptually set the scene and close it, respectively, and its penultimate number, “Metamorphosis,” with Markus Schulz, is entirely instrumental. Schulz is one of two artists to feature on the album, the second being Amidy, who works alongside HALIENE on their previously released single, “Parachute.”HEAVENLY fittingly finds a home on Tiësto‘s Black Hole Recordings. Laden with supple, emotive melodies, many of which flirt with elements of trace, a genre with which HALIENE has long aligned her sound, HEAVENLY can be streamed below.Tags: , , ,
