The brand new project from Estonian Eurovision Finalist, Igor Volhonski, Hellove has launched with “Lie,” a gorgeous pop-dance ballad alongside Australian singer-songwriter, Trove. Expressing a longing, emotional message, the track follows the narrative of two-faced lovers and dishonest relationships.
Emerging with lightly plucked guitar strings, “Lie” builds upon a filtered vocal chop, expanding with Trove’s yearning vocals. The breakdown collapses with stadium-sized drums, blossoming into a multipart chorus, lyrically harping on toxic relationships and clarity achieved in hindsight. Layered synths emerge in the second half of the track, intertwining with electric guitar and stunning vocal harmonies, tying up a fantastic debut from Hellove.
Hellove told us that “releasing my debut song together with an artist I’ve been following for a while is definitely an experience of its own. Glad that Trove was up for a collaboration and added an exciting twist to the song. He gave the already uplifting instrumental a unique feeling, explaining how difficult it is to end a relationship and move on, while still thinking the best is yet to come.”
