Holy Boy: The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine Anymore

10.12.17



Helene Alexandra Jaeger is Holy Boy, an alternative pop artist, born in Norway and currently based in L.A., who has recently gotten some very positive buzz around her self-titled debut EP, released earlier in 2017.

While Holy Boy's debut album is still in the works and scheduled for release next year, the artist warms us up with an icy cold interpretation of an old classic favorite, the immortal The Sun Ain’t Gonna Shine Anymore which Frankie Valli recorded first in 1965, but met greater success a year later with The Walker Brothers.

"Where I come from in Norway, the sun almost disappears in winter. This song really embodies the coldness that comes from everything turning shadowy and blue. When there’s no sunlight, no warmth," states Holy Boy about the track and its significance on her.

Holy Boy's version of The Sun Ain’t Gonna Shine Anymore is a gloomy, dark and atmospheric piece that pays its respect to the songwriting genius of the old classic, while it works as a fine example of the act's indie pop, conveying a sound according to which the traditional synthpop spirit of Eurythmics meets the darkly haziness of Chromatics.
