Fortress Presents Helena Deland
Montreal’s Helana Deland writes songs that are a testimony of a given time or place, converting her memories to something that sounds, in a word, unforgettable.
A myriad of influence filter in and out of her writing, from ’60s Parisian pop to indie folk to fuzz rock. She describes her songwriting as a collection of “unsent letters,” perhaps fueling her self coined genre, “sincere pop.” Helena captures the unapologetic aspect of womanhood the world needs today, highlighting powerful femininity in her coals and refined writing in her unique lyrical choices.
Her two latest singles, ‘There Are A Thousand’ and ‘Perfect Weather For A Crime’ are poetic, catchy, and undeniably magnetic. Helena’s voice runs shivers down spines and guides her self-described “sincere pop” to a completely irresistible state. Her songwriting sounds like a more melodically driven Courtney Barnett, equipped with clever word play and lush rock instrumentation. Check out Montreal’s fresh faced rock starlet Helena Deland and her latest sonic offerings off her upcoming album, Altogether Unaccompanied, as part of the Modern Music series by Fortress Presents and the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth.
