Vanishing Animals: INSTS01

If you’re looking for music that makes you feel calm and otherworldly amid the chaos of Christmas, then SEEN strongly recommends you check out the gorgeous instrumental stylings of Helena Gee. Prior to the release of her debut single in early 2017, Helena Gee, AKA Vanishing Animals, is set to release a special download EP today.

‘INSTS01’ is a three track EP of instrumental music that features on the forthcoming documentary: The Liberté Cup, which airs on ITV4 and ITVhub in December 2016.

The Liberté Cup follows young UK footballers running football tournaments in the refugee camps across Europe, in an effort to promote solidarity, and change the way refugees are viewed in the media: a worthy cause indeed, and the perfect antidote to festive over-indulgence.

Recorded at 212 Studio in Hackney, London, Helena played all the parts herself then built the songs up layer-by-layer and the results are ethereal yet cold, a truly beautiful soundtrack.

A hint of what to expect from next year’s aforementioned Vanishing Animals’ debut, Helena Gee will announce further details of the forthcoming single in the very near future. SEEN is all agog.
