U R S A is the brand new solo project and alias of Bristol based singer songwriter Helen Stanley.

Beautifully fractured lullabies for those fallen from grace.

With the help of her musically talented kin Helen weaves emotive, ethereal arrangements with her keys and voice at the helm. Debut album coming soon......... 

Twilight Prayer

Oh these lowly twilights are breaking me

Time to barricade regret

Flee from the void

Shamless plight come on to me

when the darkness doth bind me so

2010 - 2013

Bristol's underground psych-art-trip-hoppers Pressplay were fronted by Helen (AKA Bangs) Stanley's vocals, trumpet and keys, with Greg White's drumming and Rich Magee's bass completing the dynamic trio.

They had three critically acclaimed self-releases and gained a celebrated live reputation, augmented, in part, by the band's history of collaborations with talented local visual artists who would often enhance the experience of Pressplay's live shows with stunning projections. They recieved further praise with their legendary 'The State of Play' shows when they were joined on stage by special guests.
