about

Helen Culver London, UK

"The dark synthesised sound of Helen Culver adds something minimalist to the dimensions of play. Her vocals have a sublime essence that ordains within each track in a way that keeps everything in focus. The expansive and fluid tempo is neatly at home. This is cleverly worked and because of that emphasis everything comes together in a defined way that is brilliantly applied."

Track Name: Stranger
It must be exhausting
Playing the wrong part
Making her think
That you own her heart
It will always be mine
It's branded with my mark
I just don't want it
For me it's lost all spark

(B-Section)
You hunt me down
Tell me the same
That you wish I was her
That I had your surname

(Chorus)
You're a stranger to me
Getting stranger every day
Yet you always find me
To tell me I'm the one that got away
You're a stranger to me
Getting stranger every day
Yet you always find me
To tell me I'm the one that got away

You've been warned
Got caught the last time
But she doesn't see
All the obvious signs
From you I cannot hide
You know how to find me
You say I'm a drug
You can't let go of me

(Repeat B-Section / Chorus)

I feel sorry for her
But she should know better
I warned her about this
In a very long letter

(Repeat Chorus)
Track Name: Here To Use You
They say I can't play man
Or I'm a whore
How do I know what I like
If I don't explore
The heat from your body
Sets mine alight
Flames lick up my side
Along with your bite

(B-Section)
Batten down the hatches
Get ready for the tide
We hold on to each other
For one hell of a ride

(Chorus)
We'll only be passing
Like ships in the night
Don't want your number
Or no second invite
I'm here to use you
Don't take it personally
I'm here to use you
Cos you're easy honey

The black of your pupil
Dilates for me
You know you got lucky
Being chosen by me
There's a thing I won't do
A rule I hold dear
I won't get attached to you
At dawn I disappear

(Repeat B-Section / Chorus)
Track Name: Secret
Tensions are high
When we're near
That glint in your eye
Is more than clear
It's frustrating me
You have discipline
I know you feel it
Feel the adrenaline

(B-section)
I hear your heart whisper
I touch you, you shiver
I hear your heart whisper
I'm giving you a fever

(Chorus)
I know I'm your secret
You're struggling to keep it
You know that I'm the one
Hide it from the other one
I know I'm your secret
You're struggling to keep it
You know that I'm the one
Hide it from the other one

If we were alone
You'd admit defeat
You might misbehave
Turn up the heat
Hiding the truth
Is no good to me
Take a deep breath
Then come and get me

(Repeat B-section and Chorus)

Would it help if I told you
That I'm waiting for you
You'd never know to see it
As baby that's my secret

(Repeat Chorus)
Track Name: Heart Stopped
I can see glitter
In the air tonight
A kind of magic
Men can't fight
It derives from
A siren woman
So otherworldly
Not quite human

(Chorus)
My heart stopped
You changed the game
Your heart stopped
Cos you felt the same
Our hearts stopped
Just for a moment
Before we synced
And mended the broken

In slow motion
I pass him by
It's almost tragic
How he's so shy
Eyes that sparkle
Sun on the ocean
So gentlemanly
A radical notion

(Repeat Chorus)

That held gaze
It changed my being
I stopped looking
And started seeing

(Repeat Chorus)
