and so i tell myself that i’ll be strong

♫ Wanderhouse – LIGHTS (Ellie Goulding Cover)

Ellie Goulding’s voice has always been her biggest ally and her overproduction her biggest foe. Here we get a hyper minimal cover of “Lights” laid under the gorgeous vocals of Wanderhouse’s Marie Moreshead. It’s beautiful, haunting, and better than anything Ellie’s has ever done. (except when she does the covering) Props to producing partner Doctor Rosen Rosen for knowing when to reign it in.

    Really lovely. Covers like this serve people who say pop is all superficial a big tall glass of Shut Up juice.

    Yeah, and always interesting to hear an alternate take on something. I’ve always wondered how certain screenplays would turn out in the hands of a different director. Not a remake, but a more timely film “cover”

    That’s actually a really interesting idea. There’s a parallel universe out there where Tim Burton never left the Batman franchise and it’s a much better universe than ours.
