MUSIC | Helene Jæger's solo project has a new single out, and it's backed by luscious visuals
Desire can come in distorted forms.
Helene Jæger is getting set to release a new EP for her dark, cinematic pop solo project Holy Boy. Last week, she dropped a single from the new EP called "Lay Your Hands" via Earmilk. The wavy alt-rock track is a lot more energetic than "Deep Sky," a doleful, organ-driven track that comes paired with visuals that match it's dream-like energy. Giving "Deep Sky" an in-depth listen, it almost comes as no surprise that Jæger has an interest in the esoteric.
Jæger tells Popdust that the song was birthed when she was in a very strange place emotionally. For her, "Deep Sky" is "when the borders are all erased. Where does one person end and the other begin?" The sensuality and desire so present in the song's video is palpable, confusing, and ever-entrancing. Step into Jæger's dark wonderland if you dare.
Holy Boy EP is set for a June 9th release.

Now more than ever, as Black Lives Matter protests occur around the world, it's extremely important to lift marginalized voices. The music industry has repeatedly erased Black voices throughout history, despite the fact that most mainstream genres were invented by Black people.
The new video explores the pain of feeling utterly helpless.
