Helium is the critically-acclaimed debut album from UK collective Urban Myth Club. Described as "one of the best downtempo albums ever" and "as close to musical perfection as it gets", the album is an eclectic mix of finely-crafted songs and epic orchestral landscapes. Fusing lush organic electronica and chilled beats with beautiful female vocals, "Helium" takes you on a soundtrack-filled journey which you want to revisit again and again.

"Urban Myth Club have produced one of the finest, most complete, most beautiful and truly gorgeous albums my ears have heard for years. When I've first came across "Helium", I was blown away, just taken aback with the quality of the song-writing and the beauty of their arrangements. It's quite frankly stunning. One of the best downtempo albums ever released. Beautiful, flawless and simply adorable. As close to musical perfection as it gets."
The album features the hit single "I Feel It" with Clare Szembek on vocals and includes access to a bonus 14th track.
