Dubber recommends Citizen Helene

Helene’s EP is currently featured on Andrew Dubber’s music blog:

‘There’s something classic and timeless about the kind of vocal harmonies that you used to get on records by the Mamas and Papas, the Carpenters and yes, the Beach Boys. It’s not something you come across too often these days – so when you do, it’s really welcome.’
