Berlin-based duo The Ghost of Helags pulls our nostalgia heartstrings with their new single “Bye Bye Tokyo,” a dreamy cinematic electropop piece that radiates the desire for escapism. Written before covid hit, “Bye Bye Tokyo” boxes us into that tranquil moment of silence as the swelling synths suspend you with drunken wanderlust. It is a farewell anthem that captures the melancholia of missing the traveler’s high:
On the release, The Ghost of Helags’ Teresa Woischiski shared: “[Bye Bye Tokyo] was written on the airplane on the way home from Japan (Tokyo). “While everyone was sleeping, there was this unreal vibe of being amongst hundreds of silent people in a bubble of sound high above the clouds.”
The track is from their upcoming album We Came From The Stars, which will be out on March 12th.
