Goldroom – “St. Ides Heaven” (Elliott Smith Cover)

Goldroom - St. Ides Heaven (Elliott Smith Cover)

Goldroom is one of the best in the biz of tropical dance music but the man has a great point about the genre’s simpler & surface songwriting style.

Elliott Smith is one of my songwriting idols, simple as that. Sometimes I really feel like the emotional songwriting part of music gets a bit lost within the dance music world, which was a big reason I picked this amazing song to cover. I just wanted to try and do my best to honor such a great musician and one of my favorite songs.

I’m giving this song away for free (you can download it by clicking the above link) because I have an EP coming out on November 9th that I’d love for everyone to check out when it comes out. Its called the Embrace EP and its 6 songs, including my brand new single “Embrace”. Thanks to every one of you for all of the support you’ve been giving me recently, I just wanted to give you a free download as a thank you!

I’ve never gotten into Elliott Smith but I sure as hell like this track.
