Product Description

Veriditas introduces unusual shapes and landscapes to the Helios catalog. Whereas past songs have followed traditional structures — discernable bell curves with beginnings, arcs, and ends — the focus here is texture and harmony.

I wanted to explore emotionality within something more static.” Synth-tones radiate and hum as vignettes, often crisp and cloudless, other times smeared to a queasy Boards of Canada-like unease.

The latter burbles below the last moments of Eventually and looms over the opener Seeming like darkness inching across a forest. Tracks cease at will.

Seeming fades just after a sliver of light cuts through the mossy pillars. Latest Lost mists for just one minute. Row The Tide for two, hovering like a helium balloon lost to the horizon. Even Today hangs above the snowcaps, suspended in an upper arboreal sequence, as shimmering surges of static trace the treetops below.

Moments on Veriditas pass quickly, but as a series of moments, they are fluid, almost regenerative. Disassembling the album by instruments is difficult. Unlike past Helios work, there is no percussion.
