Listen: ‘Bread Alone’ by Lorne

Definitely loving the U.K. today on the old The Lowdown Under as we head to Berkshire for new artist Lorne and his evocative new single Bread Alone.

Hailing from Berkshire, LORNE is set to release his debut EP, Maze in Spring 2017 and lead track ‘Bread Alone’ is a haunting, rousing and minimal release that’s been compared to the likes of fellow singer-songwriters Damien Rice, Peter Gabriel and Ben Howard.

Featuring soaring cello and violin parts, recorded by Yoed Nir (Regina Spektor, Rufus Wainwright), the song is inspired by the biblical phrase ‘man shall not live by bread alone’ implying we need a spirituality or a hope of something that’s more than tangible for us to live a truly meaningful life. Whether this is love, religion or just experiencing something other than the mundanity of the 9-5 working life, the song inspires us to discover something more. It’s a track about loss, but also about looking forward, taking chances and seizing the day.
