kyla la grange set you free

For fans of synthy big-voices indiepop ala Florence and the Machine, Kyla La Grange’s 2011 album Ashes was a stealth classic (check out “Walk Through Walls” if you don’t believe me). The British singer-songwriter released one more album, Cut Your Teeth in 2014, but soon slipped away from the music world. But now she’s released her first song in four years, and it’s a cover of N-Trance’s dance classic “Set You Free.”

She said, “‘Set You Free’ has always been my favourite rave tune. The feeling you get when you hear it pour out of the speakers and onto the dancefloor, the way the crowd reacts – there’s nothing like it. I remember watching Annie Mac finish a festival set with it one year and the whole place just went crazy – just pure elation.”

La Grange initially strips the song far back from its club-filling roots, but even at its quietest, the thudding percussion signals the massive explosion to come. Listen to Kyla La Grange’s “Set You Free” cover in the music video below.

Now go check out her equally great cover of The Maccabees’ “Love You Better.”
