Hamburg ice-maiden Helena Hauff is about to drop new music. The new 4-track EP will be her first fresh material since last year’s LP Qualm arrived on Ninja Tune. The Living With Ants EP marks Hauff’s first solo outing on her own Return To Disorder imprint, that she launched back in 2015.

Previously, she had only contributed a B-side to the label’s V/A comp No Return Vol. 2 back at the start of 2018. Until now, she has used the label as a platform for other artists, including L.F.T., Umwelt and Morah.

We’re always excited to hear new Helena Hauff music, and the wait has been long enough.

Preview the title single below ahead of the release on 9th September:

Our understanding is that the other three slices will follow in a synthy-electro feel - the kind of territory that Frau Hauff operates in so well.

With Dimensions festival right around the corner, the release is perfectly timed. The Last Dance at Pula’s stunning Fort Punta Christo takes places in Croatia from 28th August to 1st September.

Helena will be heading up the medieval Moat arena on Friday 30th, where she’ll be joined by Jensen Interceptor as well as Alienata, Kiara Scuro and Alex T. Other acts appearing across the schedule, include Paula Temple, Radioactive Man, Eris Drew and Nicolas Lutz.

Concert, festival, camping and package tickets are all still available.
