PREMIERE: Helga Arvesten Releases Stunning Video for "I'm Here"
Swedish alt-pop singer/songwriter Helga Arvesten has released the powerful and stunning music video for her track, “I’m Here” today. Watch the video now below.
“I’m Here” is the title track from Helga’s latest 3-track EP. The song is about a time of inner turmoil and conflict and the dramatic and raw video was inspired by the idea of having two sides to yourself, being torn, pulled from light to dark, from hope to hopelessness. The visual was directed and produced by Xander Turian of Cuprite Productions.
Of the song, Helga said, "This track is one that is very personal for me to share, more so than some of my other songs. The intent with the music video was to capture the same intensity which is expressed through the vocals through motion. I wanted a complexity, determination, anger, and hopeless sadness to be oozing out of this simple yet effective video. I want to thank the great team who put this amazing video together, it is great to see what a couple young, creative, and persistent minds can accomplish."
Helga Arvesten will scratch at your core and tug at your heart with her ever so soul charging music. This native Swede has spent most of her childhood and teen years traveling the world, living in a variety of places (Sri Lanka, South Africa, Laos, US). During those developing years Helga discovered the power of expressing herself through art and music, finding inspiration in her idols (David Bowie, Frida Kahlo). Struggling with insecurities, anxiety, and rootlessness, finding a way to express herself became the foundation for staying sane when feeling troubled. Tattooed on the right side of Helgas ribs sits a quote from one of her favorite songs “All the knives seem to lacerate your brain, I've had my share, I'll help you with the pain, you're not alone” ~ David Bowie ~ Rock `n´Roll Suicide.
Helga’s music, just like her art gives an insider look into this creators life. Holding a lot of complexity and stirring up emotions for the listener/viewer, but this of course is purposefully done. Helga thrives on the idea that anything you make must come from an honest place since this is the only way what we make can hold the power to change someone, only in an instant or maybe permanently.
Currently the 25 year old songwriter/singer/producer lives in Stockholm, Sweden. This is where she conjures up new material and sounds. Helga’s latest release was a trio of singles which like all her music kept the listener shivering and hoping in suspense as the blistering pop gently touched the ear.
