Helsinki Horizon – “Signal Flares”

“Signal Flares” is a stirring new track from Norwegian act Helsinki Horizon. Passionate vocal outpouring meshes effectively with a bouncy clanging of keys, amidst a busy rhythm section, escalating with gradual yet effective allure. The “no more signal flares,” refrain plays as a great twist, projecting a feeling of climatic momentum and unbridled emotion, especially upon the vocal at 01:55, which is followed beautifully by lingering guitar tones. Orchestral-laden components mesh with a rock-friendly, climatic push and invigorating vocals throughout; “Signal Flares” is a powerful, satisfying track.
