The Ghost of Helags – Bye Bye Tokyo
Readying their debut album for touch-down in the coming weeks, today – THE GHOST OF HELAGS – share one of its finest moments: “Bye Bye Tokyo”.
The latest single to emerge from ‘We Came From The Stars’ (out 12 March 2021), finds the Berlin-based duo’s definitive dream-pop sound taking flight.
Feeling inspired and emotional on the plane home after what had been an unforgettable trip to Japan, Teresa Woischiski began to capture the myriad thoughts and feelings coursing through her mind at that very moment.
“[Bye Bye Tokyo] was written on the airplane on the way home from Japan (Tokyo)” reflects Teresa. “While everyone was sleeping, there was this unreal vibe of being amongst hundreds of silent people in a bubble of sound high above the clouds.”
The result is a snapshot of that stitch in time; a final memento from an adventure that would leave a lasting impression on the band for sometime to come. “Bye Bye Tokyo, I’ll bring home the neon lights” lulls Teresa here, over a panoramic score of glowing synthesisers and skittering syncopated beats.
