Haleluya Hailu is reclaiming the Manic Pixie Dream Girl.



The term describes a well-worn stock character whose sole purpose is to help or inspire brooding young men lost in a time of transition. But the Israeli-born, Vancouver-based Hailu, a multi-instrumentalist, poet, and activist, wants to bring a third dimension to these colorful female archetypes on her clever and catchy forthcoming album eternally, yours.

Named for the classic arthouse film Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind, eternally, yours. features a vibrant and sparkling collection of alternative-minded tracks that effortlessly straddle emo, punk, and pop in the vein of Paramore, WILLOW, Clairo, and Dominic Fike. 

As she started school at Selkirk College, Haleluya’s freshman year coincided with recording at 604 Studios with producers Quinn Pickering and Jared Manierka. Haleluya closely mined her personal life for inspiration on eternally, yours., which grapples with themes around isolation, mental health, burdensome memories, personal growth, and ending toxic relationships. 

As Haleluya prepares to launch eternally, yours., which finds the young singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist at a crossroads, one thing is for sure: Anyone working to better understand themselves, their friends, their relationships, and their next steps will relate — eternally.
