A music blog from Ireland.
Here’s one the lovers, near, far, fictional or unsuspecting: Kim V Porcelli’s cover of I Want Your Love by Chic, featured on the OST for Shame. It’s a deconstructed version of the disco classic, led by a saddening, sweet sigh of cello.
As a performer, Kim has played cello for Ann Scott and Miriam Ingram, and as a solo musician, composes music for film and television.
Kim says ::
“It’s going to be a pay what you like single starting from Valentine’s Day. I’d already had the notion to release a little something in the new year, as so many of my friends had released really wonderful Christmas singles and I hadn’t had the idea to do one in time. So I decided to do a V-Day single instead.
I got the idea to do it based on the original Chic song being featured in the film ‘Shame’. Michael Fassbender’s sister has it playing on the turntable when he gets home and we first meet her (I’ll say nothing else in case you haven’t seen it yet). In the scene, it’s not exactly the original tune: they’ve looped it, so it’s longer and fits the scene.. Which lent it this really sensuous kind of trancelike quality. I watched and listened to it and thought, Damn, that is a heck of a pop song! It gave me the idea to do something equally enrapturing and moody, based on it.
