English singer Antony Hegarty with his band Antony and the Johnsons, emotes this spine-tingling song, stopping in mid-song due to overwhelming emotions. This sad tune actually makes me happy. It’s off their second album, I Am a Bird Now.
This Baroque pop band released their first album in 2000, and have since released 6 albums (2 of them live) and many EPs. Led by transgendered lead singer Antony Hegarty’s distinct voice, this band is most strong when the music is simple and not overproduced. I’m sure they’d be best heard live, so if they’re in your town, go see them.
