With their new album ‘Negotiations’ out this week on Sub Pop, Portland duo The Helio Sequence prepare for their two London shows next week with a new video for single ‘Hall of Mirrors’.
“Whilst I’m not one to bandy the word ‘epic’ around if I can help it, that is most certainly the word to describe this video which takes in canyons, oceans, open roads, forest fires, moonlight punch ups and a certain sense of the depraved to animate the already expansive yet delicate sound of the track itself.” says the press release

‘Negotiations’, the fifth full-length album written, recorded, and produced by The Helio Sequence, would sound different had it not been for a flood. In 2009, while touring in support of ‘Keep Your Eyes Ahead’, singer-guitarist Brandon Summers got an unexpected phone call in the middle of the night. Back home in Portland, OR, the band’s studio/practice space was under nearly a foot of water. Heavy rains had caused the building’s plumbing to overflow like a geyser. But Summers and drummer-keyboardist, Benjamin Weikel, were lucky: All of their best equipment was either on tour with them, or racked high enough off the studio floor to be spared.
