Matthew Hemerlein -Shelter (by the XX)

 
I find shelter, in this way

Under cover, hide away

Can you hear, when I say?
I have never felt this way

Maybe I had said, something that was wrong
Can I make it better, with the lights turned on
Maybe I had said, something that was wrong
Can I make it better, with the lights turned on

Could I be, was I there?
It felt so crystal in the air
I still want to drown, whenever you leave
Please teach me gently, how to breathe

And I’ll cross oceans, like never before
So you can feel the way I feel it too
And I’ll mirror images back at you
So you can see the way I feel it too

Maybe I had said, something that was wrong
Can I make it better, with the lights turned on
Maybe I had said, something that was wrong
Can I make it better, with the lights turned on

Maybe I had said, something that was wrong
Can I make it better, with the lights turned on

Matthew Hemerlein was driving through Arizona, on his way across the country, in 2012. He had just signed to the 4AD label, and he knew he didn’t want to release his debut album under his given name, but he hadn’t determined what his alter ego would be. That’s when it simply popped into his head: Lo-Fang.

After the fact, the 30-year-old singer-songwriter came up with many reasons why the alias suited him perfectly—its hint of Taoism, its resemblance to “Wu-Tang Clan,” the softness of the Lo contrasted with the violence of the Fang. But the real reason he chose it was that he just knew it was right.  For More
