“To say Helen Ballentine had a stratospheric twelve months is quite the understatement.” – Line Of Best Fit

 

“It’s a deft record, tranquil on its surface but torrid underneath, its loosely strummed acoustic guitars and vaporous melodies rooted to the ground by probing lyrics.”

 The Fader

 

“Lovely, captivating, and quietly devastating.”

 Pitchfork

 

“The solo project of the Los Angeles-based artist Helen Ballentine revels in

tense moments, hard emotions and uncertain outcomes… smart, insightful

sounds that draw on classic forms but explore them from inventive new angles.”

Los Angeles Times

 

“…It’s placid and romantic, but it’s also broken and trying to heal.”

Paste

 

“It’s clear in listening to Skullcrusher that these songs weren’t conjured up in a boardroom or even a studio, they are packed with an intensity that can only come from being alone. This effect is what leads to one of the most compelling aspects of the EP. Ballentine is able to make her listener power down and do just that: listen.”

  Office Magazine

 

“The lifting of her voice to deliver this catharsis knocks you out of your

daydream, and you realise that all these thoughts have been leaving an

imperceptible strain on the singer, who suddenly cracks – and the pure

vulnerability is stunning.” Beats Per Minute

 

“Softly devastating.” Gorilla Vs. Bear

 

“The music sometimes seems to melt into the vocals so that you less have to

listen to it than bathe in it.” PopMatters

Storm in Summer (is) a worthy follow-up to what came before, and a sign that there should be plenty more great things to come.” – Flood 

 

LA musician Helen Ballentine is continuing to prove why she’s someone you should be keeping your eyes on.” – DIY

“Storm In Summer” is the musical and artistic triumph” – Under The Radar 

Skullcrusher will make her debut in Dublin with a performance in The Workman’s Club, 14th September 2021. This is to celebrate the release of her EP ‘Storm In Summer’ which was released in June 2020.

Secretly Canadian is proud to introduce their new signing, Skullcrusher, the project of LA-based songwriter Helen Ballentine.  Skullcrusher is, by all accounts, an exploration of the ways you become yourself when you aren’t looking – a hushed celebration of the tiny, understated subtleties that culminate into self-realization.

On the “Skullcrusher” EP, Ballentine offers an airy, intense, and unflinchingly open collection of songs written about – and from – one of life’s in-between gray areas and the subsequent search for identity.

High tipped amongst NME, PASTE, DIY Mag and Alternative Press. 2021 will see her first performance in Dublin live at The Workman’s Club, 14th September.
