duo The Helio Sequence new album ‘Negotiations’ came out this week on Sub Pop. Thsi is the video for single ‘Hall of Mirrors’. The Helio Sequence play Rough Trade East for free at 7pm next Wednesday (Sept 19), followed by a headline show at Hoxton Bar & Kitchen next Thursday (Sept 20). Here’s an interesting tale; In 2009, while touring in support of ‘Keep Your Eyes Ahead’, singer-guitarist Brandon Summers got an unexpected phone call in the middle of the night. Back home in Portland, OR, the band’s studio/practice space was under nearly a foot of water. Heavy rains had caused the building’s plumbing to overflow like a geyser. But Summers and drummer-keyboardist, Benjamin Weikel, were lucky: All of their best equipment was either on tour with them, or racked high enough off the studio floor to be spared…just so you know. It might be a question in a pub quiz or something.
