Helenor is the musical moniker for Boston based visual artist David DiAngelis. The debut LP “something twice” was written and produced at home over the greater part of 2017. Drums were provided by Seth Kasper (Mass Gothic, Christopher Owens, Hooray for Earth, Wild Light, Air Traffic Controller) who also co-produced the album.
David studied at Massachusetts College of Art and Design with a concentration in Illustration. He is a working visual artist/designer whose approach to music is heavily influenced by visual narrative. David has played in several acts, including Philosophical Zombie - where he and Seth Kasper began to first collaborate.
The LP “something twice” was predominantly written, recorded and engineered at Helenor's home studio in Brighton, MA. It is the product of a patient process, influenced by the various details that home recording reveals.
Inspiration for the record came from discographies across multiple genres. From the early days of Beck to Fleetwood Mac, Frank Ocean, Deerhunter, Ricky Nelson, Elliot Smith and more - each musician casting its own indelible mark. The final result is a lovingly crafted collection.
