HELICAL | INTERVAL: TRANSMIT

The seed of HELIC.AL was laid in 2015, following another soul-cleansing trip to Detroit. HELIC.AL, the new label from Todd Sines + Charles Noel / Archetyp, functions as an constrained exercise to break from restrictions. Instead of the obvious new electronic dance music label that would be expected of these seasoned producers, HELIC.AL turns history on its ear, resulting in collaborations new and old.

INTERVAL celebrates the release of their debut album, Transmit, featuring bassist Andries Boekelman, Todd Sines on vocals, guitar, synths & engineering, and Arch E Typ / Charles Noel on drums and percussion. We think James Dean Brown sums it up best here:

“Are these current productions? Hard to believe since they capture the unique, late 70s/early 80s depro-vibes perfectly as opposed to so many other producers these days who deliver just a stereotype of what they think made the sound from back then. I am especially captured by Interval who appear to be a dubby breed of Cabaret Voltaire / Eric Random and Ike Yard. The video clip is enchanting, a masterpiece of morbid beauty, with images torn between Eros and Thanatos.”
— Peter Weiss, aka Perlon’s Narcotic Syntax / Hypnobeat [Dark Entries]

“Interval embodies the classic spirit of 1981, but with the knowledge of the modern age. A heartfelt record that wears its heart on its sleeve, but with a eye to the future. The entire album is solid, but wane has a special place in mind.”
— Silent Servant, Jealous God
