Readers, prepare for your heart start beating irregularly as I introduce you to Matthew Jordan Hemerlein who goes by his stage name, Lo-Fang. I’ll keep this post short, because my main purpose is just to turn you onto his music and have you listen to it, instead of having you read my prittle-prattle.
But, before we get to that, I do have a few points to make. If you were to ~ahem~ stalk him, as I have, you will notice that the indie-alternative and classically trained musician only has a handful (of thousands) of Instagram and Twitter followers, which included me before I deleted most of my social media. But it doesn’t make sense! In my personal opinion, he should have a much higher following since he opened for Lorde in Spring 2013.
But anyway, the 19-year-old Australian singer wasn’t the only one who wanted something to do with the Maryland born artist. Baz Lurhmann, the director of Romeo + Juliet (1996) and the The Great Gatsby (2013), requested Lo-Fang to record a slowed down, sexed up rendition of the classic Greece song, “You’re The One That I Want” for a Chanel °5 advertisement.
This guy is so talented, and if you still don’t believe it after listening to “The One That I Want,” go listen to him on Spotify. I’ve linked his songs below:
