"Slow-paced but fast-burning - minimal yet wholly effecting. An artist whose span results in extremely special music"

"Holy Boy stuns: Utterly immersive; smoky and classic"

“Mystifying and atmospheric"
Holy Boy is the musical moniker of LA based, Norwegian-born alternative artist Helene Alexandra Jæger. Her debut EP of "explorations in consciousness" was recorded at Ben Hillier’s (Depeche Mode, The Horrors, Blur++) Pool Studios in London and released to acclaim in 2017, with single “The Blood Moon” being premiered on BBC Radio 1 and Holy Boy performing at festivals including CMJ, NXNE and SXSW.
Taking sonic cues from artists like The Velvet Underground and Talk Talk's "Spirit Of Eden", Holy Boy's arrangements are sparse yet atmospheric - Jæger's old soul contralto pushed through haunting vocal effects floats over primal drums and vintage organs.
Holy Boy's first full length album is due 2019.
