Helene Greenwood – Flat Roof House

H Greenwood_RingMaster Review

You like us have probably never stood back and realised, let alone explored, the mesmeric charm and elegance of elements within the walls and scenery we spend most hours within. London based singer and composer Helene Greenwood has and reveals the” ethereal moments of beauty in the domestic environment” in her forthcoming second album and before it new single Flat Roof House. Bred in the already renowned creative and perceptive fascination which fuelled her previously acclaimed propositions, the new single is a siren in sound and immersion in atmosphere, an aural free spirit of celestial seduction.

helene-greenwood-flat-roof-house-single_RingMaster Review     Composing music since the age of ten, the Dover born Greenwood went on to study with internationally acclaimed singers Nia Lynn and Anita Wardell, and particularly explore composition with John Woolrich whose words “music is made from hundreds of pebbles, and that each pebble has a different idea, and every pebble needs a special colour and quality to it” obviously stayed with and inspired her, as Flat Roof House alone suggests with its kaleidoscopic weave of sonic colour and textures. The sultry summer embrace of debut EP The Break awoke ears and awareness across fans and media to the emerging talent and uniqueness of Greenwood in 2013, with her first album Collectable You later that same year, exploring and revealing even greater evocative depth and imagination in songs devouring the diversity of flavour and texture.

Flat Roof House suggests that Greenwoods second album Exquisitely Hopeless will be certainly an equal to its predecessor’s bewitching enchantment of poetic imagination and adventurous sound, and we suspect probably eclipse it, though one song is just a note in an album’s full tune of course. From its first breath, Flat Roof House is sharing with ears a warm ambience soaked in emotive hues. It is an absorbing entrance which only blossoms as the recognisable hug of Greenwood’s vocals joins the equally expanding croon of keys. Darker strings and skimpy but inviting beats only add to the seducing air of song and its ethereal dream pop laced splendour, and fair to say that in no time ears and certainly imagination are fully lured into a dream state of melodic wonder and brightly haunting radiance. As it progresses, the track and Greenwood almost shed their creative skin as the sun at the heart of the track dissolves into rays of beauty and shimmering majesty for a vaporous sonic finale.

The track is spellbinding and Helene Greenwood a unique creative voice in ambience fuelled music with her entwining of numerous styles and colours, to simply it, so many times breath-taking and inescapably transfixing. It is proven again with Flat Roof House and no doubt will be again in a few weeks by Exquisitely Hopeless.

Flat Roof House is available from August 28th.
