The New LoFi

Ten Years

Harry Nathan teams up with fellow Sydney-sider, Angus1 for new single: “I’m In Need”

“’I’m In Need’ was written on the day that Angus1 and I first met,” explains Harry Nathan when describing how the new single came together. “We sat in my kitchen eating French éclairs, lemon tarts and croque monsieur croissants whilst getting to know each other. This theme of longing emerged during our conversations, and that vibe was captured in the studio moments later.”

This fateful meeting in Harry’s studio in Sydney was the first time the two producers met. After those first few conversations, the theme for a song began to emerge through their discussions about loneliness and isolation. And the collaboration was born.

“Harry and I were put in touch by a mutual friend who knew we were both a little eccentric,” continues Angus1. “I’d never made a track with someone I’d literally just met, but we found common ground really quickly and did just that. I think the song is a nice mid-point between our writing and production styles. It didn’t hurt that Harry plied me with pastries and booze either”

“I’m In Need” is a slice of indie-pop that meets two-step lo-fi house. It’s as if Toro y Moi got together with Bonobo and Caribou and had a lemon tart party. Basically it’s chill-out music turned up to the max.

“I’m In Need” is available everywhere now via Kitsuné Musique.
