There is an undeniable playfulness to the oblique, complex melodies found within Hélène Barbier’s body of work. A founding member of Moss Lime and Phern, Barbier began creating under her own name with the debut LP Have You Met Elliott? in 2019. On her sophomore LP Regulus, Barbier takes a dialed back approach. Playing nearly every instrument herself, the resulting tracks are ever-evolving and fascinatingly layered.
