HEXE feat. Avia Farchi- Alternate World
I must say that before I heard he was performing in Israel I hadn't heard of Son Lux, and even afterwards I didn't really get around to listening to his music. But then Timeout.co.il asked a few local artists to cover Son Lux songs. Most of the songs didn't leave a very strong impression on me, maybe because I was unfamiliar with the originals, but then I heard this one. It's so beautiful and successfully captures a very specific feeling and time. It also complements the original and feels very "Son Lux" while still maintaining its own personality. Since hearing it I've listened to Lanterns quite a few times and I just can't get enough of it-there's always something new to discover. HEXE is an intriguing collaboration between Jonathan Lipitz and Tamir Gordon and here's their latest single-I think I'm slowly diving into a new world of music... I wasn't able to find too much info about the very talented Avia Farchi-just that she's soon releasing her debut e.p and in the meantime here's a taste of her material in Hebrew.
