Nik Lone : We’re Dying Alone

We're Dying Alone sounds like Space Oddity. Nik Lone's song hovers in a beautiful but cold otherworld; a heavenly, cauterised place where depressing existential thoughts float by harmlessly, reduced to philosophical abstractions. Nik's sweet, silky voice is close to a whisper at times, but the song is buoyed by rich orchestration and shimmering vocal effects, and the result is strangely perfect.
