Italian duo HELALYN FLOWERS come out of their forced confinement and reveal the second single from their much anticipated new studio album “Àiresis” with the simultaneous release of a new 3-track single and video clip. This new revolted and heavy industrial pop song “Metropolis Necropolis” points out to what our cities have become: schools of dehumanization and death, titanic concrete and glass gravestones where mankind mechanically consumes its condemnation.

A labyrinth of the absurd, an anthill doomed for neverending repetition… A devastated psycho-urban landscape where the HELALYN FLOWERS manage to blossom from the slime to create their own artificial Eden within the city walls, shout their disenchantment and disillusion, and raise as the incarnation of the symbol of the wise.

“Metropolis Necropolis” has that intrinsic surrealistic anger that characterized the band’s early work merging goth punk attitude, revolted guitars, addictive powerful female vocals and hard-pop catchy electro keyboards, evoking some kind of a futuristic version of SIOUXSIE & THE BANSHEES on acid or other boosted LADYTRON on steroids… Straight, sharp and incisive, this stunning new song grabs your heart with energy and wraps it with a veil of apocalyptic melancholy.

The “alternate” version of the title-song gives a more danceable twist while reinforcing its dense atmosphere, while still keeping the guitar work central amongst the bursting electronic machines. The EP ends up with a very harsh remix of the previous single "Suicidal Birds" by the infamous Belgian gang, IMPLANT who gave a noisy, grim and dirty dimension to this uplifting hi-energy nu-synth wave song.

This new HELALYN FLOWERS EP was mixed and produced during phase 1 of the Covid19 quarantine, with a feeling of zeroing the future and living in an eternal present that has paid off to fulfill a beautiful artistic parenthesis that has continued the emotional axis of the new upcoming album "Airesis"…
