If a sound could make you think you were drowning while standing on a gravel road, it would surely be the dark, distorted, horrific cries of Toronto-based Helen Hartley. Her particular mixture of '90s goth rock meets drone metal meets industrial rock meets grunge feels like a wormhole to a dark recent past. A wormhole into which you willingly throw yourself. Go ahead, jump!


This dream is for you. You can't ignore
The last time you had it, you wanted more
This started over time, now it happens all the time, with you
There's no way this song is sung that will work for everyone. It's true

You keep reaching further, one foot out the door
Heading down the road you've been before
This started over time, now it happens all the time, with you
You always look for something wrong. This road is getting way too long. What can I do?

I'm feeling frustrated
It won't be long
Before you lose it all
It's the same every time
You make me lose my mind

This time, we all find nothing
This time, we don't look within
You tell me everything's alright, so I believe you finally might be telling the truth
I get sucked in every time you want to sing another line. I always fall for you

This dream is for you. Don't wake up now.
Forget the way things have been. It's not as bad as it seems, anyhow.
This time, we will find something to set it right.
This time, we'll give the darkness light.

Then all can be as one
It won't be long
'til we can finally come
To where we understand
And I let go of your hand
