Danish born, Berlin living and with a new EP (this is the title track) due in November which was inspired by the pulse of life in Paris, Lasse Matthiessen is a cosmopolitan new-folk folkie. Opening with a few stabs of electronica, When We Collided soon opens up to reveal an emotional depth that strikes a chord from the first listen. There’s an urgency in the thrumming guitar, there’s a dolorous sense to the vocals, and the interplay with Sara Hartman harmonies is as fragile as a champagne flute balanced on the Pont des Arts.
