Lo Fang: When We’re Fire (Cello Version)

An empowering #PrivateJam, SBTRKT goes Higher, Metronomy's mind-bending music video and more in the songs we tweeted this week

After garnering much acclaim while supporting Lorde on her most recent tour, Lo Fang has just announced a new mixtape and a listen reveals the work to be as impressive as his live act. This EP, Every Night, is available on 30 September 2014 and features a new cello version of his single “When We’re Fire.” There’s a majesty to his voice and the delicately throbbing string instrument calls to mind a more mellow version of Nick Drake’s “Cello Song.” There’s something haunting to the arrangement—intimate, thoughtful and, at times, piercing.
