Emily Reo – “Birds Of Paradise” (Pretenders Cover)
Emily Reo, who creates uniquely homespun electronic pop, has put out an interesting cover of the Pretenders. Her version of “Birds Of Paradise” is hypnotic and just a little bit creepy. The synthesizers delicately hum and her vocals are as dreamy as ever, but the whole thing gets complicated by that static-y loop which drills its way right into your mind. It’s a very pretty cover, one that glistens as much as it glitches. Listen below.
