When Helado Negro (creative moniker of Roberto Carlos Lange) began writing his latest album, Far In, immediately following his breakthrough 2019 release This is How You Smile, he could not have predicted that we would soon need to learn how to stay at home and be the stars of our domestic dance floors with intimates and online communities.
“Escape is never out there, you have to go inward,” Lange reflects on developing an epic Helado Negro double album during these extraordinary times, embracing the dark of the unknown with openness, pleasure, and growth. Throughout Lange’s career, imagined beings, ghosts and haunted machines appear in sci-fi stories and his own conjurings. On Far In, Helado Negro “celebrates the ghosts,” embracing pleasure and freedom to follow the metaphysical further.
