Die hard Kelsey Lu fans may fret at the idea that she might be abandoning the cello, but we’re not worried at all. You can hear in the layers of her vocals the oscillating rhythm of an instrument that has completely possessed the artist and endowed her with an air of continual, breathy expansion. Kelsey Lu’s “I’m Not In Love” is a haunting and luscious update to the original track by 10cc. One that abandons the bright 70s synth that made this track a power ballad for slow dancing at the disco, and pares it down to needle-point potency of a raw heartbeat and atmospheric synth more befitting to the times, and arguably the song itself.
Says Lu, “This is dedicated to the ones who have ever felt misunderstood in the name of Love, in the name of Self. Who Love the Passion, Love the Grace Of Dramatics, Love the obsession of life and want to Kill the Confusion all while finding beauty in the abstract of growth and humor that surrounds the horrors both within and around us daily.” We say, “Thank you!”
