Angel On Fire – Antony & The Johnsons (Single)
Tucked away, the last track on the soundtrack to the Hunger Games:Catching Fire (Deluxe Edition) is a little gem by Antony & The Johnsons titled “Angel On Fire” According to Antony & The Johnsons News the song harks back to 1992 and the backing track for the song is partly comprised of a 4 track recording that Antony once used for club performances in New York City.
Antony transfixes the listener when he sings in his otherworldly voice, he emits emotion by the bucket-load without even trying. The strings are glorious and add to the haunting ethereal feel to this song.
Everything about “Angel On Fire” screams quality; the dramatic opening, the production, the glorious strings and the beguiling vocals. VeReViews has only heard one song this year that matches the emotional pull of “Angel On Fire” and that is Woodkid’s “I Love You”
It’s heartening to see Antony & The Johnsons music reaching a wider audience with Avicii covering “Hope There’s Someone” on his current album “True” and with the inclusion of “Angel On Fire” on the Hunger Games soundtrack.
