Brother and sister, Helena and Andreas finally combined their love for music and art creation in general. For years, Andreas had released music under a different alias, which makes him a rather experienced player in the music industry today. Helena, on the other hand, spent a great part of her youth being a well known YouTuber in Denmark, with over 70k subscribers. During the time of their individual projects, Andreas tried convincing Helena to join forces with him, since singing was always a big part of her life, she just wasn’t ready to show the world yet. However, today it all makes sense for the both of them, since writing songs and singing them out loud isn’t something you just do – it has to come from somewhere. When Helena first started writing their debut song ‘Trophy’, she felt the need to shed light on how society approaches love and dating in this day and age. “We’re all playing the same old game.” The fact that breaking up and finding another partner any time you want to, is something that strikes a wrong note in her. Where is the true dedication? As she sings in the song ‘Throw yourself out there, they say – but keep your heart to yourself.” The song then got a new meaning when joining Andreas in the studio to record it, since getting new eyes on it, and underlying music made it feel empowering and quite the opposite of the critical view on society. The song wasn’t meant to be directly positive and uplifting at first, but rather a way to express her honest thoughts about a certain topic. In other words, the song first became whole, when the idea of the post-chorus came to them. “Throw yourself, throw yourself out there” repeated over and over. This is the exact line that provoked her deeply, when people told her to do it in real life. She took their “bad advice” and twisted it into something that she wholeheartedly believes in. The act of actually throwing yourself out there, and at the same time allowing oneself to be vulnerable in the process without the fear of getting hurt. Helena believes that this is the only true way to experience a real connection and that relationships are a reflection of aspects within oneself. Listen below.

Moweh – a West African, Liberian name roughly translated to “Who is this?” Or “What is this?”, the experience of questioning and curiosity, is the solo project of Liberian Singer, Songwriter, and Producer, Faith-Joy Kpoto. Inspired by artists like Solange, Billie Holiday, Portishead, Fela Kuti, FKA Twigs, Björk, Kimbra— their music combines elements of Alternative, Blues, Experimental, Rock, Electronic and West African drums/rhythms to create an interesting, familiar, yet unique sound. They have been singing since they were 5 – and grew up singing alto in the choir. Moweh describes their music as “a journey” and “short stories”…. They have worked with artists like Solomon Temple, Sweetz, Kitson, BJxCC and written for a few other artists both in Liberia, and the United States. Their debut single ‘The Lonely’ is out now. “I wrote and did the initial production of ‘The Lonely’ a few years ago using the mic on my wired headphone,” says Moweh. “I remember creating the “Ooooo” vocal sample in the beginning, and then hitting record, closing my eyes, and singing what is now the first verse. I spent a long time recording and re-recording vocals for this record and ended up using majority of the demo vocals. When intimacy becomes unsafe, and the safety of a bed a trap, the project came out as an answer to the questions “How does this feel?” Or “Do I want this?” It was a journal entry I had to vocalize. ‘The Lonely’ is the realization of being wanted but ultimately used. Saying “I don’t have to stay, and be your hiding place” & “I don’t want to be the one to break your fall.”Underneath all of it is, it is the sadness of being used as a temporary escape from loneliness. All the questioning…. The feeling of feelings, the looking, and finding of answers in this project, and like the name is the core of the music I make.” ‘The Lonely’ is the first installment into the exploration of Moweh’s curiosities.
